Kale Salad with Lemon Tahini Dressing

Happy January, friends! ‘Tis the season for salads, smoothies, and detox soups...right? This kale salad is the perfect vegetable dish to pull you out of the post-holiday slump. It’s inspired by a salad I had when I was visiting Chicago last month. It’s so simple - just chopped boiled eggs, parmesan, roasted pumpkin seeds, and kale, all dressed in a super easy, oil-free lemon tahini dressing. It keeps so well in the fridge in a stasher bag (kale is so sturdy and resilient!) and is a great recipe to make at the beginning of the week to have available for lunches or a side to dinner.
