  • Mandoline / V-Slicer
  • Box Grater


For the salad

  • ½ bunch of kale (6 stems approximately 260 grams)
  • 2 tbsps olive oil
  • 1 bunch broccolini or 2 cups chopped broccoli (approximately 110 grams)
  • 2 medium carrots (approximately 170 grams)
  • cup pecans (chopped)

For the creamy balsamic

  • cup tahini
  • cup Balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp liquid sweetner (honey, maple syrup, liquid stevia to taste)
  • ¼ cup water to loosen


  • Wash your kale and rip the leafy parts from the ribs, discard the ribs chop finely.
  • Add chopped kale to a large mixing bowl, add some salt and 2-3 tablespoons olive oil.
  • Massage the kale for 3-5 minutes until tender but don’t overdo it.
  • Wash and trim your broccolini and chop finely.
  • If you are using regular broccoli, trim any woody stem ends or tough leaves from your broccoli with a knife and then chop roughly to make 2 cups.
  • Wash and trim your carrots. Either grate your carrots coarsely or use a mandoline v-slicer to cut into bite-sized julienne.
  • Roughly chop your pecans.
  • Place your dressing ingredients in a glass jar, season and shake until combined. If you prefer a smoother consistency add to a small food processor or blender and blitz.
  • Add all your ingredients to the bowl with the kale, pour over the dressing and mix well to combine.
  • Taste and adjust seasonings according to your taste.
  • Keep chilled until you are ready to serve.
