Kale Chickpea Salad With Citrus Sesame Dressing

Another delicious salad bursting with flavor and so good for you

Salad Ingredients

300g purple curly leaf kale, washed and destemmed
Juice of half a large lemon
1/2 medium red onion, thinly sliced
50g julienned celery
1/2 large yellow or orange capsicum (bell pepper), julienned
400g cooked chickpeas
1/2 cup sliced pitted green olives

Dressing Ingredients

1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon each lemon and mandarin juice
1 teaspoon braggs amino or own choice of a light soy sauce
1 teaspoon agave


- Wash Kale, remove leaves from stem. Place in a salad spinner to remove excess water. Tear leaves into bite size pieces. 
- Add juice of 1/2 a lemon to the kale. Massage with your hands to release juices until kale takes on a wilted look. This helps to soften the kale. Set aside.

- Prepare remainder of salad ingredients, add to marinated kale.
- Prepare dressing, add to salad and toss. 

 For best results add dressing a few minutes before serving. 


Colossians 3:16 Let the word of christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one anther in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
