Why I Love This Recipe

I am the author of The Trendy Vegan, a lifestyle blog for vegans for a lifetime (or just for a meal!) I joined a CSA this summer and had a gorgeous head of kale, and wanted to do something new with it. I also had some hummus and cannelini beans, both great sources of protein and totally vegan friendly, so I got creative. This dish is fresh and crisp and quite filling for a salad. I've remade it on numerous occasions, and am always happy to share delicious creations with others!


Ingredients You'll Need

1 head of kale, washed and chopped into bite size pieces
½ head of napa cabbage, washed and chopped into bite size pieces
½ can rinsed and drained cannelini beans
1 TBSP tahini (sesame paste)
1 generous TBSP Sabra hummus
¾ cup Greek salad dressing (or similar red wine vinaigrette)


Directions

Wash and chop your greens and place them in a large mixing bowl.


In a separate bowl whisk together the salad dressing, tahini and hummus until well combined.


Pour the dressing over the greens to coat well.


Add the beans and refrigerate for 30 minutes and then serve chilled.


Feel free to add a few squirts of fresh lemon to brighten the taste even more!
