Broccoli Kale Salad With A Tahini Dressing

  1 rater(s)

Have you ever enjoyed a salad that has more vegetables than leafy greens? It’s a very different salad-eating experience, and we love it! The salad has various textures, but more than that, it is filling, hearty, and, most importantly, delicious. Just make sure that you thoroughly chop the broccoli into small pieces because large raw broccoli chunks may be difficult to chew and enjoy.

There are a lot of broccoli salads out there, especially pre-made bagged salads that you see in the store. You can enjoy these while cleansing, so long as you avoid the bagged nuts and packaged dressing. The nuts are usually candied and those dressings contain excess fats, added sugars, and other ingredients you cannot enjoy while cleansing. Other than the dressing and nuts or dried fruit, the salad portion is excellent, convenient, and acceptable to enjoy during the cleanse. That is a little pro tip, a pearl of wisdom if you will, for all you cleansers out there.

When it comes to choosing the kale for this salad, you can go for the variety you enjoy, but lacinato kale is a great choice. The leaves have a dark green color and are less curly than other kale varieties. These leaves hold up very well with the other ingredients in this salad. Because kale is a sturdier leafy green, it holds up for a day even if you dress it. Refrigerate the dressed salad overnight and enjoy it the next day for lunch. It’s like you’re meal prepping without knowing it!
