Equipment

  • Lemon juicer
  • Food processor
  • Garlic mincer

Ingredients

For the salad

  • 10 cup chopped kale This is usually the equivalent to one large bag.
  • 1 cup shredded carrots You can buy the carrots already shredded next to the regular carrots.
  • 1/2 cup pistachios Save yourself time and buy the ones without the shells!
  • 1 cup pomegranate seeds Save yourself time and buy pomegranate where the seeds are already removed! Most grocery stores sell it this way.

Dressing

  • 1 whole lemon, juiced If you roll the lemon before cutting into it, it will help release the juices!
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 10 ounces tahini Make sure the tahini is not dried out! I like Trader Joe's brand.
  • 3 tbsp coconut aminos
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 cup water

Instructions

For the salad:

  • Put all salad ingredients in a bowl and set aside to make the dressing. Once the dressing is made, add the dressing to the bowl and massage the salad with your hands until it is mixed throughout. Massage for 1-2 minutes.

For the dressing:

  • Place all dressing ingredients in a food processor and blend for 30 seconds. *Note this will come out thick
