Oil-free Tahini-massaged Kale Salad
Woohoo! Nailed this one. Mountain Man and I often go to a local Indian restaurant beacuse they always have vegan options on their lunch buffet. And one of those options is a kale salad. But it’s massaged with OIL, of course, which is the usual way these salads are made because the oil does a great job of softening those tough, chewy, raw kale leaves.
Well, guess what? Tahini works just as well at softening the kale leaves and is so, so, so much healthier. Tahini is made from sesame seeds, which have the greatest amount of calcium of any food in the world, provide abundant amounts of naturally-occurring vitamin E and contain a unique antioxidant called sesamin. What’s so special about sesame seeds and their sesamin? There are so many health benefits that rather than list them all here, I invite you to check out this article: SESAME SEEDS
This is a fabulous dish to take to a potluck, or just to have on hand when you want something sumptuous and healthy to munch on. Make a double batch—it won’t last long!
