This recipe for refreshing sesame salad is super healthy, crisp, and full of incredible flavor. This salad starts with a base of nourishing kale and is topped with a variety of crunchy vegetables and is finished with a light and refreshing sesame dressing.
One of my favorite parts of eating a vegan diet is exploring different vegetables. Watermelon radishes are still relatively new in my food repertoire and I love the flavor and bright, beautiful color they bring to the table. I also love preparing my veggies in different ways! In this salad I use spiralized cucumbers and carrot swirls (made using a vegetable peeler). It’s a great way to “spice up” vegetables I would usually put into a salad and makes them more exciting.
