    Sharon123's Note:

    I had some kale salad from my local Ingles grocery store the other day and wanted to make something similar at home. This is what I came up with. I hope you enjoy it. The key is to chop up the kale real small. Feel free to put what you want in the salad. The dressing is used in Lebanon to use over fish, felafels, rice, etc.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 3 -4 cups raw kale, finely chopped
    • 1/2-1 apple, chopped (I used fuji)
    • 1/4 cup craisins (or more to taste)
    • 1/4 cup toasted walnuts, coarsely chopped (optional)
    • 1/4-1/2 cup carrot, grated (I chopped mine in the food processor)
    • 1/2 cup celery, finely chopped (or sliced thin)
    • 1/2 cup edamame beans (can also use garbanzo beans-optional)
    • 1/4 cup mixed sprouts (of choice-optional-I used clover)

    Tahini Dressing

    • 1/3 cup tahini (well stirred)
    • 1/3 cup water (more or less depending on how thin you want your dressing)
    • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (may add a little more to taste)
    • 2 garlic cloves, minced
    • 1/2-3/4 teaspoon sea salt
    • 1 teaspoon honey (more or less to taste, may use other sweeteners)


    1. 1
      Place all the chopped and grated veggies, nuts, and sprouts in a large bowl. Add the edamame beans and/or garbanzo beans, if using.
    2. 2
      Place tahini, water(start with less water and add more to get to desired consistency), lemon juice, garlic, salt and honey in food processor or blender. Blend until smooth. This makes about 1 cup.
    3. 3

      I had to try this after (Chef #593927) UmmBinat recommended. I used all Organic. I did only add carrots and apples but the sweetness from the apple worked nicely with the raw kale. I also used a little organic apple cider vinegar mixed in the Tahini and a couple drops of spicy sesame oil for a little kick. Next time I will try it with the honey.

      Great!!! I knew I would love the tahini sauce because I use it for other salads we enjoy, specifically Salata Tahini--Middle Eastern Tahini Salad and a variation without cucumber and with chickpeas. I used organic green kale, an organic braeburn apple, organic Thompson raisins in place of Craisins for no sugar added, Pakistani pine nuts (real pine nuts) in place of the walnuts which I toasted in a dry pan, greater amount of organic carrot grated, no celery, no beans as I had chikpeas but didn't think they would match too well, tried to buy sprouts but wasn't sure of the kind so I had to leave them out this time, organic tahini, organic freshly squeezed lemon juice, sea salt to taste, organic raw, local honey, plus the water. I want to try this on DH along with a soup.

      While I am primarily rating the dressing here, this was simply excellent. Sharon 123 has a great eye for flavors and textures and this salad is a prime example. This dressing is just one of those recipes where the flavor pops. I used kale cut fine and I added the apple I had into the mix. I also used toasted walnuts. Didn't have sprouts or edamame. And I threw in some feta cheese. But the salad dressing makes this. If you've been wanting to try a kale salad, this is a great salad dressing for kale and for what ever veggies you might have on hand. However, the apple, the nuts make for a winner on texture and flavor contrasts and so those are pretty important components.
