This is such a delicious twist on your everyday salad. The creamy nuttiness of the tahini dressing with the silky massaged kale and crunchy sesame seeds is like a little holiday for your tastebuds! This salad is amazing as a side or throw some gorgeous grilled steak on top for a sensational main.

Ingredients:

200g of Kale
3 Tablespoons of Sesame Seeds
For the Tahini Dressing:
3 Tablespoons of Tahini
2 Tablespoons of Olive Oil
Juice of 2 Lemons
2 Cloves of Garlic
3 Tablespoons of Water
Pinch of Coarse Salt`
Step 1: Tear all the stalks from the kale and add it to a large bowl. Drizzle it with a little bit of olive oil, about a teaspoon. Use your hands to massage the kale, rubbing and squeezing it for about 5 minutes. You’ll notice the colour and texture of the kale change as you massage it.
Step 2: Set the massaged kale aside and add all of the dressing ingredients to your food processor and blitz until you have a smooth, creamy dressing.
Step 3: Add the sesame seeds to a pan on medium heat and toast until their nice and golden, tossing them regularly. Toss the kale in the dressing, sprinkle generously with the sesame seeds and dig in.
