If you ever go to Whole Foods salad bar they have this delicious raw kale in a fabulous light dressing and tons of fresh garlic. In attempting to create this deliciousness the first attempt was a big fail as I tried to sautée the kale and then adding in freshly chopped garlic.
It wasn’t great so I finally found a recipe that apparently is the same as Whole Foods and put to work last night.
The result was a crunchy delicious mouth watering experience that makes me wonder where has Kale been all my life?!
Here is my modified version of the Whole Foods recipe:
1 bunch of fresh kale
1 tbsp Tahini
1 tbsp gluten free Tamari
2-3 cloves of fresh garlic (more or less depending on preference
1/2 fresh lemon
De-stem and then tear up the kale into smaller pieces. Wash in colander under cool water and then pat dry.
Mince garlic. I love garlic so I used 4 cloves.
In a large bowl, combine the kale, tamari, tahini and garlic. Gently mix together and if you desire a bit more tahini I drizzled a bit over the already mixed kale.
Then squeeze fresh lemon over top and mix one last time.
Put on your plate and enjoy the great mix of flavors! Not to mention it is very healthy!
