Kale Caesar with Tahini Dressing

Kale Caesar salad with roasted chickpeas and a creamy tahini dressing 

Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 1 hour
Servings 4

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch kale (or bag)
  • 3/4 cup tahini
  • 4 tbsp greek yogurt
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • ~1/2 cup warm water

Instructions

  1. Remove any stems from kale and roughly chop. In a large mixing bowl massage kale for 1-2 minutes. This is super important! It helps to break down the greens and make them easier to eat. 

  2. To make dressing: Place all dressing ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth and desired consistency has been achieved (may have to add more water)

  3. Pour dressing into bowl with kale and toss together until kale leaves are fully coated. Refrigerate for about 30-1 hour hour (this will aid in further softening the kale)

  4. Now is a great time to make the roasted chickpeas! See recipe in post. 

  5. Remove dressed greens from fridge and add grape tomatoes, roasted chickpeas, and Parmesan cheese (optional)
