Sometimes the easiest recipes are the best. This Garlic Lover’s Kale Salad from Eating Bird Food is literally just kale with a simple garlic tahini dressing, but it’s incredibly delicious and nourishing. One serving of this salad has 7 grams of protein and all of your daily Vitamin A and C.
Garlic Lover’s Kale Salad
- 1 bunch Kale, de-stemmed and chopped (about 4 cups)
- 2 tablespoons Tahini
- 2 tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar
- 2 tablespoons fresh Lemon Juice
- 2 tablespoons Liquid Aminos or Tamari (can be found at specialty grocers)
- 4 tablespoons Nutritional Yeast
- 2 teaspoons Garlic, minced
Break or cut kale into bite size pieces and place in a large bowl.
Puree all ingredients except kale in a blender or food processor to blend the dressing.
Pour dressing over kale and massage into the kale with your hands until all pieces of kale are coated.
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.
