Not sure if you noticed by KALE IS IN SEASON! This in my favorite recipe to recommend to people who say they just don't like kale, it makes them gag, why do I have to eat kale, etc etc. I have a good friend who really hated kale with all of his heart but LOVES this recipe. It's super easy and is great as a side dish at dinner or as meal with bacon or grilled chicken and croutons added on top.
1 bunch raw kale, washed, de-stemmed and dried
2 Tablespoons tahini
2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
2 Tablespoons soy sauce
4 Tablespoons Parmesan
2 teaspoons minced garlic (1 – 2 cloves of garlic)
1. Break or cut kale into bite size pieces and place in a large bowl.
2. Puree all ingredients except kale and sesame seeds in a blender or food processor to blend the dressing.
3. Pour dressing over kale and massage into the kale with your hands until all pieces of kale are coated.
4. Let the salad sit in the fridge for an hour or so to marinate. You can skip this step if you need to eat right away, but allowing some time to marinate will wilt the kale a bit and make it a little more palatable
