My neighbour gave me the inspiration for this salad. We were chatting about kale one day and she told me about this salad she’d been making. I arranged it to try and threw together my own version of it with my creamy dressing. My daughter and her friends and my inlaws all like it – that’s gotta count for something.


Kale-Broccoli Slaw

4 cups green kale, cut into thin strips

2 cups broccoli florets and stems, chopped finely

1/2 cup green onion, finely chopped

1/3 cup pecan pieces

1/4 cup dried cranberries


1/4 cup tahini

2 tbsp flax seed oil

2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

1 tbsp agave nectar

1 clove garlic, minced

1/2 tsp dried tarragon

sea salt and pepper to taste

Combine kale, broccoli, green onion, pecans and cranberries in a large bowl.

In a glass measuring cup, combine tahini, flax oil, vinegar, agave nectar, garlic, tarragon, salt and pepper. Whisk together or blend with immersion blender.

Pour dressing over salad and toss to combine – this slaw as with more other slaws – is even better the next day.
