Kale Sweet Potato Salad with Tahini Miso Dressing

Some of you may feel about kale the way I feel about worms.

Gross.

In fairness, it’s a far reaching comparison at best. Worms are slimy, kale isn’t. Kale is considered food, although, to some that may be questionable.

The logic behind this ridiculous comparison?

My brave girl who, much to her Mama’s dismay, loves worms!

I firmly believe that if given the option of a worm, or this awesome Kale Sweet Potato Salad, fish all over the ocean would be screaming for kale!

As always, the dressing makes the salad. This concoction had tahini, apple cider vinegar, miso and maple syrup. Definitely Strange but Good!

And then, you massage. Have you learned anything from me? Miss Rae hasn’t. I tell her not to pick up worms. You see how well she listens…

I’ve been a big fan of this kale salad with pomegranate arils and vegan Parmesan, two things vacant from my fridge. When it came to toppings for this salad, the fridge did boast something awesome: roasted sweet potato chunks. Those with some pepitas for crunch (I’m officially addicted) and I was set.

In reality, worms topped with this delicious dressing just might be palatable…

And I’ve gone too far…

Like Mother like Daughter…

  1. This sounds so good, Holley! I love sweet potatoes. I don’t know where everyone finds kale though. I never see it at the grocery store or at the produce market. Guess I have to search further afield. Have a great day!

  2. I don’t have sweet potato…but I do have a butternut squash. Although to be honest, I think I’d eat ANYTHING covered in that dressing. 🙂 It reminds me a bit of the Zesty Tahini Dressing they made at Whole Foods (which I have a minor obsession with).

  4. Yeah I’ve never been able to find kale either. I suspect here in Australia it’s not very popular? or perhaps not in season?? Rocket (arugula) on the other hand is everywhere here and I think it would go great with this salad. The dressing sounds really lovely 🙂
