Kale + Brussels Salad with Avocado Tahini Dressing

Kale + Brussels Salad with Avocado Tahini Dressing

I love finding new ways to make Kale salads. I came across this recipe on Pinterest and it caught my eye right away. A salad full of so many of my favorite things. The dressing is the real star of this salad so def take the time to make it (literally takes 5 minutes to mix it all up). As I was making it Sterling came up and wanted to taste the dressing and he said it was the best dressing he had ever had. He gobbled up the salad. I do recommend doubling the dressing we found we needed more it was a little dry. The original recipe calls for sliced almonds but I didn’t have any but would definitely add next time. Enjoy!
