Kale Salad with Orange Tahini Dressing

The kale and apples provide a balance of sweet, tart, and bitter flavors, while a simple tahini  dressing keeps it light and nutritious. This was a good experiment with orange tahini dressing  drizzled over finely chopped kale. Simply delicious salad.

4 tablespoons fresh squeezed orange juice
2 tablespoons tahini
2 tablespoons apple juice
1 teaspoon Balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon olive oil or grape seed oil
1 teaspoon orange zest
sea salt & pepper to taste

Salad ingredients:
4-5 cups chopped Kale
1/2 apple
1/2 orange
Handfull of walnuts

 Mix all dressing ingredients together.
 Makes 4 oz of dressing. This dressing goes well with romaine lettuce.
Cut apple and orange in cubes. Slice kale. 
 Pour dressing in the kale and scrunch it with your hands.
 Add the rest of ingredients, mix and enjoy immediately.
