Crunchy Sesame Kale Salad [21 Day Fix]

5 from 1 reviews


  • 1 bunch kale
  • 1 cup carrots (1 green)
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds (1 orange)
  • For the sesame dressing:
  • 4 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 4 teaspoons rice vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh grated garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon honey


  1. Pull the kale off of its fibrous stems and pile on your cutting board. Massage the kale for 5 minutes (it is a similar motion to kneading bread – it will tenderize the kale and mellow out the flavor)
  2. Chop the massaged kale into bite size pieces
  3. If you washed your kale, make sure you pat it dry so the dressing will coat the leaves properly (probably easier to do this before the massaging/chopping process)
  4. Add the kale, carrots, and sesame seeds to a salad bowl
  5. For the dressing:
  6. Whisk all the ingredients together in a small bowl – season to taste with salt and pepper
  7. Dress the salad to taste (I used all the dressing)
  8. Season to taste with salt
