Massaged kale salad with orange-tahini dressing

A hearty salad that is full of flavor



For the Dressing


  1. In a large bowl, combine the kale, lemon juice, avocado, and salt.
  2. With your clean hands, start massaging!  You want to massage the kale until the avocado is broken apart and works its way into the leaves, which will soften and wilt.  Massage for a good 2-3 minutes.
  3. After the kale gets its massage, put it in the fridge and let it sit for at least 20 minutes.  (If you don’t have time for this, that’s fine.  But it does help to give the lemon more time to “cook” those kale leaves!)
  4. Meanwhile, mix together the tahini, orange juice, water, ground ginger,  salt, pepper, and orange zest in a small bowl.  Whisk until completely combined.
  5. Top your salad with your favorite fresh vegetables (I used carrots and cucumbers) and nuts (I used walnuts) then drizzle with the dressing.  Enjoy!
