Prep/Cook Time: 15 min

Yield: 3-4 servings


Ingredients:

  • ¼ cup of tahini (can substitute with peanut butter)
  • Juice from ½ a lemon
  • 2 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 1” piece of ginger (peeled and minced)

Instructions:

  1. Dressing can be made up to 5 days in advance.
  2. Combine tahini, garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, turmeric, ginger, red pepper flakes in a bowl and mix until well combined. If using peanut butter instead of tahini, first mix peanut butter with 2 tablespoons of water to thin down.
  3. Toss kale and cashews with dressing.
  4. Top with sunflower seeds or any other of your favorite salad ingredients! Salt and pepper to taste.

Save the extra dressing to use in the future on any plates of pasta or salads!
