Kale and Romaine Salad with Tahini Dressing

It’s still only March but out here in the Rockies and the temperatures are in the 50’s , it’s spring skiing and feeling a lot like Spring has sprung. I wanted to make a new fresh “spring” salad and I had seen a few dressings made with Tahini and I wanted to make my own. This is what I did last night and I have to say it was very tasty. I absolutely love Everything but the Bagel Seasoning and put it on eggs, avo toast, cheese and anything I think it will work on. If you don’t live near a Trader Joe’s go on Amazon and buy it! Buy 2 because they are that good. I put it in this salad and it added that extra layer of pizazz!

Here’s what I did: Obviously this is my salad but you can make it your salad by adding or subtracting any ingredients you’d like. The avocado adds creaminess and we love avocados — who doesn’t?????

Ingredients:

Salad:

a bunch of Kale chopped up

1 Package Romaine Hearts chopped up

2 Teaspoons Everything but the Bagel Seasoning — the real secret ingredient

1-2 Avocados , cut into chunks– I used 1 because it was just the two of us but for 4 people use 2

*if you like add croutons

Tahini Dressing:

I mixed my dressing in the blender: (see directions)

1/4 cup Tahini

3 Tablespoons Fresh Lemon Juice

1 Tbsp. Olive Oil

3 garlic cloves

2 Tbsp. Water –I added a little more through the top (see directions)

Kosher Salt –just a little bit to taste

Instructions:

Using your blender put all ingredients –Tahini, lemon, oil and garlic. I added the 2 Tbsp. of Water through the top and blended it all together. After you blend I whisked until smooth and added a little water to get the consistency of dressing that I wanted . You’ll have to play it by ear but add a little water at a time.

Transfer the lettuce and kale to a large bowl and add the dressing and toss well to coat. Add croutons if you’re using them ( I didn’t)  Add the avocados and sprinkle the salad with the Everything but the Bage seasoning. Serve immediately.

Enjoy! We did!

This would be delicious with an added protein of your choosing.
