Vegetarian Spring Kale Salad
(inspired by Sexy Food Therapy's “Killer Kale Salad”)
Kale — a super food just bursting with flavour and nutrition, plus it's packed with extremely powerful antioxidant properties.
1/2 bunch fresh kale
1 Tbsp. (15ml) olive oil
1 clove garlic, sliced
1 beet, peeled and shredded
1 carrot, shredded
2-3 Tbsp. (30-45ml) light feta cheese
1 Tbsp. (15ml) EACH tahini paste and maple syrup
2 Tbsp. (30 ml) cider vinegar
Water to liquefy
Cut up kale as you would a head of lettuce. Heat olive oil in fry pan and saute garlic on med-high heat. Throw in kale and sauté until wilted and bright green. Remove from pan and let cool.
Mix all dressing ingredients together until dressing is to desired texture. (Add a bit of water if too thick).
On a plate kale with remaining ingredients. Toss with dressing.
