Raw Kale Salad With Tahini Dressing

15 mins (prep 15)
17 ingredients
2-4 servings
I had some kale salad from my local Ingles grocery store the other day and wanted to make something similar at home. This is what I came up with. I hope you enjoy it. The key is to chop up the kale real small. Feel free to put what you want in the salad. The dressing is used in Lebanon to use over fish, felafels, rice, etc.
