Sesame Kale Salad

It's no secret that I like kale. I hadn't made a kale salad in a while and was craving some, so I decided to make my own kale salad last weekend. 
I grabbed a bag of my favorite pre-washed kale at Trader Joe's and got creative.
I decided to base this, roughly, on a kale salad I got at Whole Foods once: kale, sesame seeds, carrots, and raisins.
I decided to keep with the sesame theme and made a dressing of tahini, sesame oil, lemon juice, and then massaged it onto the kale. It sat in the fridge for a few hours and then enjoyed munching on it all weekend.

Yum Tamar, looks really good. Can't eat Kale unless it is cooked. It is just a bit too strong for me. Which is odd because I have a keen palate but kale, hmmmmmmm. I'll do spinach. Thanks for the every great recipes you have here (yours are the only recipes I pay attention to, well your and two birds). Thanks for the compliment. Bald it is!!! Seriously; a summer without hair sound really divine to me. (but will wear sunscreen, of course). ♥, Renae

@Pride In Photos would you believe there are NO Olive Gardens in my area. I've actually never even eaten at one!

That looks yummy! I love kale too, but haven't had it as a salad before. Pioneer Woman just posted a recipe for kale citrus salad on her site--makes me want to give it a try!

good gosh this looks good and healthy - oh, how I wished we had a Trader Joe's. My son has been wanting a sesame chicken salad - it might have to include some kale. Thanks!

Looks yummy however I'm guessing those are actually Sunflower seeds instead of Sesame Seeds.
