Kale, Pear, and Beet Salad

The cold weather may be coming but are you still eating your greens?

This salad is the perfect combination between nutrition and comfort food, and is a good way to get the nutrition from your greens while still satisfying your taste buds.

Kale, Pear, and Beet Salad

  • 2 cups of shredded kale
  • 1/2 cup of roasted beets (cubed)
  • 1/3 cup of cubes pear
  • 3 dried figs (sliced)
  • 1 tbsp of pumpkin seeds

 

If your beets are not yet roasted, chop them into cubes and roasted them in a pan in the oven, with a little bit of grapeseed oil.  While this is happening if your kale isn’t shredded prepare that, along with pears and figs.

When it is all done toss all ingredients in a salad bowl.

 

Dressing

  • 2 tbsp of olive oil
  • 1 tbsp of balsamic vinegar or fig infused balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp of sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1/4 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tbsp of tahini

Add all ingredients to a bowl and whisk until smooth.

Then pour over salad and toss until all is mixed. Serve right away!

If you want to serve later then leave dressing off salad in a separate container and only pour on when ready to serve.
