How To Clean Your Greens Part 2

Have you brought home a lovely bunch of kale?  Get the break down on kale in the How to Clean Your Greens Part 1 video.

Then try making this delicious recipe from my friend Jamie Mendell from StudioEats:

Massaged Kale Salad with Tahini Dressing

Servings: 2-4
Time: 10 minutes

  • 1 bunch kale
  • 1 medium red onion
  • 1/2 avocado, chopped
  • 2 T sunflower seeds (roasted and salted)
  • 1 T tahini
  • 2 T water
  • 1 T olive oil (half for the pan for the onions, half for the dressing)


Slice onion very thin. Add to a oiled pan and cook over medium heat for about 10-15 minutes. Every few minutes, just stir the onions to keep them from burning.

While onions cook, prepare Kale. Break leaves off stems and into small bite sized pieces. Rinse and transfer to salad bowl.

For dressing: mix together tahini, water and 1/2 of EVOO. Stir. Add to Kale and massage into it with your fingers for 2-3 minutes.

Top kale with onions, avocado and sesame seeds.

Optional: drizzle your portion of salad with a little more tahini if you’d like some more flavor.
