This refreshing sesame salad is 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. I love being able to incorporate a variety of different flavors and textures and feel this makes for a really fun and yummy dish!
I started my plant-based journey about two years ago and love exploring different vegetables that I never know about before. 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 (really easy to make using a basic vegetable peeler). This is a great way to "spice up" vegetables I would usually put into a salad and makes them more exciting and even kind of fun to eat!
