I basically have an eating bread for every meal for the last 10 days because I’m so exhausted I can’t be bothered to put a real meal together. But today I was feeling really hungry and I knew that I needed to eat something and something a tad bit nutrient dense. I ended up cutting up two small bunches of kale and I made this incredible kale salad.
I know, I know kale salad is so last season but I am still loving it. This version has 2 small bunches of lacinato kale massaged with a sauce of tahini, lemon juice, coconut aminos, olive oil, garlic granules, salt and pepper and tossed with a handful of hemp seeds for added plant-based protein and omega 3’s and 6’s. I had not planned on eating the entire bowl – but I did with the help of my 20 month old and I have zero regrets doing so. Seriously savory, creamy and delicious. Give it a try and share with me on Instagram #bowlsbylindsay

I still enjoy a good kale salad now and then: my favorite is the Carrot & Kale salad at New Seasons. (I like it so much that I did copycat on my blog!) I like the idea of the hemp seeds in this salad – they have such a great texture. I usually do a quick pan-wilt of the kale before I use it in a salad – it think it makes it much easier to eat.
I love kale salad when the kale is massaged well and dressed nicely, like in this salad! The flavors sound amazing. I would eat a whole bowl by myself!
For once I think I have every single ingredient for this recipe already in my kitchen! This sounds delicious 🙂
This looks so simple and delicious!
I’ve never thought to put hemp hearts in a salad like this before – great idea!
Yum! This is my kind of Kale Salad! I love that you added in some tahini to make it extra creamy!
That sounds great! My neighbor makes the most delicious kale salad that seems very similar to this! I crave it. Gonna need to try it out for myself.
