After the indulgences of the holiday or even just a fun weekend, there is nothing like a light and healthy detoxifying salad to get you back on track.
Flush out the toxins and feel lighter immediately with amazing Kale Salad…..The lemon helps to boost digestion while the chlorophyll in kale gets rid of the toxins in the body.
I love this salad topped with poached or boiled eggs for a protein boost.
Kale Salad with Chickpeas and Tahini Dressing
2 cups kale, thinly sliced and ribs removed
¼ cup radishes, sliced into matchsticks
¼ cup thinly sliced carrots
½ cup chickpeas or white navy beans
¼ cup sliced almonds, toasted
1 cup chopped basil
Avocado Tahini Dressing:
1 small avocado (or ½ a large one)
1½ tablespoons tahini
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 small garlic clove
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons water
salt and pepper
Place avocado, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, and olive oil into a food processor. Pulse, then add water salt and pepper and blend until creamy.
In a large bowl, toss the kale, radishes and carrots with half the dressing. Mix well, then let it sit at room temp for about 15 minutes. The acid from the dressing will help to wilt and soften the kale.
Add chickpeas or beans, almonds, basil and more dressing, to taste.. Taste and add more salt, pepper, and lemon juice as needed.
