Kale Tahini Salad
  • 3 cups raw kale (take off the hard "spine" that is attached to a lot of the leaves)
  • ½ cup cherry tomatoes, cut in halves
  • 2-3 tablespoons Trader Joe's Tahini sauce - side note: this is not the same as tahini paste, if you have tahini paste you’ll need to add lemon juice, garlic and salt to creat the sauce
  • Handful toasted pine nuts
  • You don't need any seasonings because the tahini sauce already has lots of flavor!
  1. Saute the raw kale in a pan with olive oil over medium heat. It will wilt down the way spinach does but not as much. This should only take about 5 minutes. Then throw in the tomatoes and let them warm up in the pan for a couple more minutes.
  2. Mix the tahini with a tablespoon of water in a jar and stir together with a fork. This is just to make the tahini a little more runny so that it can coat all the kale well. Toss the kale and tomatoes with the tahini in a big bowl and top with pine nuts when served.
