This Detox Salad with Kale is loaded with roasted cauliflower, tomatoes, grapes and other detoxifying veggies.I’ve been on a real salad kick lately. As you know, I love making salads. They make up the majority of the recipes that I create because they’re easy, they taste ridiculously good and they’re healthy. I’m excited to talk to you about this Detox Salad with Kale and Cauliflower because it’s ideal for a busy weeknight dinner (and leftovers are fabulous for lunch the next day, too).

As the weather starts to get a bit cooler here in Manhattan, I’m starting to veer away from salads and onto more cooked, warm foods (which are very good for your spleen). Little did I know, all the raw cold salads I ate for many years negatively affected my spleen and my hormones. Thank goodness for my Acupuncturist, Aimee Raup, who educated me on this topic. I’m not telling you to stop eating salads…I’m just saying not to eat salads every single day of the week and to mix it up with warm, cooked foods. Catch my drift?

This Detox Salad with Kale is drizzled with a tangy tahini dressing and tossed with grapes, tomatoes, roasted cauliflower and more.Now, let’s move onto this Detox Salad with Kale and Cauliflower.

It’s full of delicious veggies like kale (you can use the flat dinosaur kale or purple kale). I suggest you don’t use the curly kale for this recipe because it tends to be too much volume to handle. I tossed in naturally sweet cherry tomatoes, green grapes, purple cabbage, arugula, roasted cauliflower and sunflower seeds to make this a well-rounded meal that can be enjoyed anytime of the year. You can serve this salad with the cauliflower warm right out of the oven when the weather is cooler and you can wait to serve the cauliflower when it’s cooled off from the oven in the warmer weather.

The directions are pretty straight forward.

Roast the cauliflower so it’s super sweet and tender. Yum!

Toss all the salad ingredients in a large bowl.

Add the roasted cauliflower.

Drizzle with my Garlic Tahini Glaze and serve.
