Hail to the kale, goji’s and turmeric! This superfood salad is healthy, and ooh so good, to boot! If you’re looking for an immune booster and a delicious way to get tons of nutrients all in one bowl, you gotta try this! The dressing can be a little thick, depending on the brand of tahini you are using. Just add more water, to make it a dressing consistency.


For the Dressing:  (Makes 1 cup)

  • 4 TB lemon juice (about 1 lemon), or more to taste
  • ½ cup filtered water, or more if needed 
  • ½ cup Tahini  1 clove garlic, peeled and chopped
  • 2 TB maple syrup
  • 1 tsp. turmeric
  • ½ tsp. cumin seed, ground
  • ½ tsp. cayenne pepper, or more to taste

For the Salad:

  • 4 cups curly green kale, stems removed, and chopped
  • 8 medium thick asparagus stalks, finely sliced into coins
  • 8 brussels sprouts, finely sliced ½ cup goji berries, soaked in warm water for 10 minutes, or until soft, drained
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste


For the Dressing:

1- Place all of the ingredients in the bowl of a food processor or blender, starting with the lemon juice and water, which will allow the tahini to blend in easily.  Process until very smooth.. Taste and add more lemon juice, or other spices as needed.

For the Salad:

1- Place the kale, asparagus and brussel sprouts in a large serving bowl. Spoon 2-3 tablespoons of the salad dressing on top, and using salad utensils or your hands, toss the salad ingredients until mixed through and the kale is lightly coated with the dressing. Taste and add black pepper if desired. Add more dressing as needed.

2- Sprinkle softened goji berries on top and serve.
