This dressing is so good! You can add this to steamed veggies, potatoes and sandwiches, it’s so delicious! I found the dressing recipe on the Forks Over Knives website – I included my changes too, it was a little too sharp tasting so I added some Stevia and extra lemon. I decided to mix it with cranberries, oranges and almonds and it turned out great! The orange juice in this salad makes it even better! My toddler loves this salad! I add lima beans to her salad if I’m serving it as a meal, she loves them!
Kale Salad with Maple Lemon Dressing*
1 bunch of kale, stems removed and chopped or torn into bite-sized pieces – I used green kale this time but any kind is good!
Dried cranberries, about 1/3 cup
Slivered almonds, about 1/3 cup
2 oranges – wedges removed (see pics for instructions) and juice reserved for salad
Zest and juice of 2 lemons – I added 1 more juice and zest but try it with 2 first
1 (15-oz.) can white beans, drained and rinsed
1/4 cup tahini
1/4 cup stone-ground mustard
3 Tbsp Braggs Amino Acids (or wheat-free tamari or low-sodium soy sauce)
2 Tbsp. 100% pure maple syrup
1/4 cup nutritional yeast flakes
1/2 cup water
1/8 tsp Stevia or to taste
1. Place all dressing ingredients into blender (I use my Vitamix) and blend until smooth.
2. Chop or tear clean kale into salad bowl, add cranberries, almonds and orange segments (see pics) – top with dressing and massage with hands or toss with tongs
This salad (and dressing to top other goodies!) will keep in the fridge for a few days.Tags: almonds, Braggs Amino Acids, dried cranberries, kale salad, kale salad with dressing, maple kale salad1, maple mustard dressing, maple syrup, oranges, Stevia, tamari
