Ingredients
  • 1 bunch of curly kale, chopped and stems removed
  • 1 apple, diced
  • 1 lemon, juiced and divided
  • 2 Tbsp tahini
  • 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 garlic clove, minced

  • Sea salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 Tbsp roasted pumpkin seeds, garnish (sub nuts of choice)

  1. Rinse the kale thoroughly and remove the kale leaves from the stems. Discard the stems and roughly chop the kale leaves. Squeeze half of the lemon and add a pinch of salt, then massage it into the kale.
  2. Squeeze a little lemon juice onto the diced apples to prevent them from browning. Add the apples to the kale.
  3. Place the remaining half of the lemon juice in a bowl with the tahini, olive oil, water, garlic clove, honey and salt and pepper. Mix it well and add it to the salad.
  4. Garnish with the pumpkin seeds or any nut of choice and the dried cranberries.
