Author Notes

I couldn't decide if I should take the kale in a creamy direction with a tahini-based dressing and with top with shaved carrots or utilize the strawberries in my fridge. I went with the strawberries full blast and ended up with this hardcore winner, had the bf crying out “MORE KALE!”

If only I had feta in the fridge, this salad would take home a gold medal.

Tip* Make your dressing right in the measuring cup - helps with measuring of course but also with pouring it up when its done.
