  • 1 head curly kale finely chopped and ends removed
  • 1/2 cup Tahini sesame seed paste
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 4 Tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil or avocado oil, plus more if needed
  • 1 tsp. mustard seeds
  • 1 small clove garlic minced
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 large red apple finely diced
  • 3 Tbsp. Ocean Spray® Craisins® Dried Cranberries

  1. Place the kale in a large bowl; set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk the tahini, water, lemon juice, 1 Tbsp. oil (add more if needed), mustard seeds, minced garlic, sea salt and pepper until smooth. Drizzle about half of the mixture (or as much as needed) over the kale mixture and use your hands to massage the kale for 1-2 minutes or until the kale leaves are soft, tender and dark green.
