Kale and Apple Salad with Tahini Dressing


  • Kale
  • 1 medium apple

Salad Dressing Ingredients:

  • 1 jar sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup olive oilolive-oil-sesame-seeds-sheslosingit.com

Salad Directions:

Wash kale and put into salad bowl.  Wash and cut up 1 medium apple and mix with the kale.

Tahini Dressing Directions:

Toast 1 container sesame seeds over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until they start to turn brown.  brown-sesame-seeds-sheslosingit.comPut in food processor and add 1/4 cup olive oil.  Blend.  For thicker dressing reduce amount of olive oil and for thinner dressing add more.tahini-dressing-food-processor-sheslosingit.com

I only use 1 TBSP of dressing on my salad because even though seeds and olive oil are healthy fats, they are still fats and calorie dense.  The rest of the dressing can put stored in the fridge in Tupperware.  I usually finish the dressing in about a week.tahini-dressing-sheslosingit.com

Kale can be bitter but the sweetness of the apple counters that and the tahini adds a nutty flavor to it.
