2105207742_55dee0dcf6_m

One bunch of Kale

4-5 Beets Shredded

1/2 cup -1 cupRaw Pumpkin Seeds

Dressing

3 heaping tablespoons of tahini

1/4 cup of lemon juice (freshly squeezed, or Real Lemon)

2 cloves crushed garlic

1 tsp sea salt

1/2 tsp black pepper

water

Method 

  1. Prepare your kale, by peeling all the kale leaves off the stems.
  2. Wash the chopped kale leaves.
  3.  Shred your beets with a cheese grated (use the bigger grates).
  4. Mix your beets and kale together.

Now assemble your dressing:

  1. Mix the tahini and lemon juice together. You will notice that this starts to thicken significantly. Thin out the dressing with water and stir until the texture evens out. The amount of water you will vary, but the consistency you are going for is like a ceasar dressing.
  2. Add your crushed garlic
  3. Add your Salt and Pepper
  4. Mix and voila a delicious tahini dressing.

Toss your salad with the tahini dressing and sprinkle pumpkin seeds on top.
