Alkaline Recipe #195 Crunchy Kale Salad with Tahini Dressing

kale and avo salad with tahini dressing recipe
Article by ross

This salad is SO fast to make, so satisfying and it’s unbelievably alkaline. It’s become my #1 favourite alkaline lunch.

The crunchy kale and radish, the surprise of the texture of the nuts, the creaminess of the tahini dressing…

Oh man, I’m drooling just thinking about it!

It’s packed with alkalinity, packed with nutrients and is highly anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant rich.

I love making it easy to get alkaline, get healthy, and get nourished and this salad is a real shortcut. The prep time of the whole thing is about 8 minutes yet it presents and tastes like a meal that’s had real care taken in it’s preparation!

If you’re in a hurry this is a great, filling salad.

OR you can use it as a fantastic starter or side salad.

In summary, it ROCKS.

Crunchy Kale Salad with Tahini Dressing

Serves 2

Ingredients

4 big handfuls of kale, stalks removed and roughly sliced
8 brussels sprouts, shaved thin
2 radishes, thinly sliced
1 carrot, shredded or thinly sliced
1/2 cup of canellini beans (or any other beans you like!)
2 tablespoons of almonds, roughly chopped
1 tablespoon of cashews
1 tablespoon of pumpkin seeds
1 cup basil, chopped

For the Tahini Dressing

Half a large avocado
1 tbsp tahini
1 garlic clove
1 tbsp olive or flax oil
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
Cracked black pepper
Pinch of Himalayan salt

Instructions

  1. This is so simple – first put all of the dressing ingredients except for the water into a blender or food processor and whizz until smooth. If you want to thin the consistency out a little, add a little water, a tablespoon at a time
  2. Now make the salad by mixing all of the salad ingredients together
  3. Pour over the dressing and stir well
  4. Serve!

As an option, you can add another step by mixing just the kale, sprouts, carrots and radishes with about a third of the dressing and then leaving to stand for 5-10 minutes to allow the kale to soften a little, then add the rest of the stuff and the rest of the dressing.

I just go for it in the shortest possible time as I like my kale a little crunchy – but whatever suits you best!
