Kale Salad with Tahini & Everything But the Bagel Seasoning (Plant-based option)

All Mediterranean Flavors Salads
Kale salad with tahini and everything but the bagel

WHEN A FRIDGE FORAGE PRODUCES DELICIOUS RESULTS!

A salad doesn't need to be complicated to be good, and this one is a perfect example!

I was literally foraging through my fridge to use up leftover bits and bobs.  I found Kale and Scallions in my salad drawer, had some parmesan that was grated and kept in the freezer, and I ALWAYS have tahini and some homemade everything but the bagel seasoning on hand. 

I loved the way this salad turned out.  It was light, creamy, and easy to pair with a simple protein for a complete meal.

It also stores really well so leftovers are perfect for lunch the next day.  

I used my simple tahini dressing and parmesan cheese for a creamy umami punch but if you are vegan, have a dairy sensitivity, or are doing a special diet like the Whole30, Plant-based Whole30, or a Clean-in-15, you can replace the cheese with nutritional yeast for that wonderful umami flavor.
