Kale & Quinoa Salad with Garlic Tahini Dressing
- 1 bunch of green or black kale, stems removed
- 1 cup cooked quinoa
- ½ red onion, finely chopped
- ½ cup sunflower seeds, raw or roasted
- 2 tbsp hemp seeds
- ½ cup chopped almonds
- 2 tbsp tahini
- 2 cloves garlic
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 3 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tsp sea salt
- ¼ tsp black pepper
Tear kale into bite-sized pieces, or shred into ribbons. Place in large mixing bowl and set aside. Place all dressing ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Drizzle 2-3 tbsp of the dressing over kale and massage to soften it. Transfer the kale to a serving bowl and add all other ingredients. Refrigerate to allow kale to continue to soften. Drizzle with more of the dressing before serving.
