Kale Salad
  • 3 large handfuls kale leaves (curly kale is best)
  • 1 bunch (200g) broccolini
  • 1 bunch (200g) green beans, trimmed
  • 3 tbsp black sesame seeds
Tahini Dressing
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ lemon
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp water
  • Salt + pepper
  1. Start by making your dressing. Add all the ingredients to a bowl and whisk until it’s all combined and creamy, without any lumps. If you think its too runny add more tahini one teaspoon at a time. Taste and adjust any seasoning.
  2. Add your kale onto a large bowl and pour your dressing over it. Using your hands, massage the dressing into the kale. Really get in there, squeeze, toss, and rub it. You’ll notice it’ll gently start to wilt a little bit, that is what we want! Set aside while you prepare the beans and broccolini.
  3. Boil some water in a saucepan and add a steamer basket with your broccolini and green beans. Steam for 3-4 minutes, just until tender but not wilted. While you steam fill a large bowl with cold water and ice cubes. As soon as your veggies are done add them to the ice cold bowl and blanch them for 3-4 minutes (however long you steamed them for).
  4. Drain, add your awesomely tender and crunchy veggies to the kale, toss so that the dressing coats everything, drizzle some extra tahini on top, add your sesame seeds, and serve!
