Kale salad with creamy tahini dressing for an easy dinner on Meatless Monday
Kale is an ideal way to get your leafy greens; the vegetable is packed with nutrients. And this salad adds a little creaminess to kale, allowing you to indulge a bit while you're still doing something awesome for your body. Adapting the recipe from http://cookieandkate.com, we added some more tahini and kept the amount of water low for the dressing.
