Dressing:

  1. Mix the olive oil into the tahini
  2. Squeeze the lime juice into the mix

  3. Put them in the fridge to cool.
  4. Soak the kale in a tub of room temperature water for 15 minutes.  
  5. Rib the leaves, cut them into pieces and massage them with salt until the colour brightens
  6. Open the pomegranate, cut the cherry tomatoes into halves and cut the avocado and red bell peppers into long thin pieces
  7. Add all of the ingredients into the kale and drizzle the dressing over it.
  8. Toss the salad and add salt to taste.

 

Serving Tips:

  1. Make sure the dressing is a runny consistency or else it won’t mix into the salad.
  2. The longer you leave the dressing in, the more it sits in the leaves
  3. If you refrigerate, double check the flavours as they tend to wear off

 

Happy Choppings!
