At the time we also had a TON of cherry tomatoes and cucumbers, so I started playing around with the ingredients in pulling together this "greek" style salad. The dressing is a combination of tahini, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar and herbs and spices, and makes for a perfect pairing!
I should also note that today happens to be National Kale Day, and fall-winter kale is just about to be back in season. While I didn't plant a fall-round of kale in our garden, I am wishing I did! My loss I guess.
Salad Serving Size 1 Cup
1 bunch kale, stems removed, rinsed, dried
4oz crumbled feta cheese
1 can (14.5oz) chickpeas, rinsed
4oz cherry tomatoes
1 cucumber, diced
Dressing Yields 4oz or 8-1 tbsp servings
1/4 c. lemon juice
2 tbsp tahini
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 cloves garlic, peeled
1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
1 tsp lemon zest
Salt, pepper, to taste
For salad, combine all ingredients in a large tupperware container. Attach lid and shake to mix well or toss with tongs.
For dressing, combine all ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth (30-45 seconds should be plenty).
