Christmas Kale Salad

Taking this pretty red and green salad to the family gathering today. Happy Christmas and Merry Holidays!

Recipe: (double if you like)
1 bunch kale torn into small pieces
Cut the following into small pieces: Carrots, Red onion, Red bell pepper.
Put all into a big bowl and add 1Tb olive oil and a squeeze or two of lemon juice. Massage kale and veggies with your hands. This will soften the kale leaves. Add Dried cranberries and Toasted nuts (walnuts or pecans are good). Then toss with dressing. Refrigerate an hour or more.

Tahini dressing:
1/3 cup tahini
1/2 lemon, juiced (or more to taste)
2-3 tablespoons water
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tsp maple syrup
1 tsp dried dill
pinch of cayenne
fresh chopped chives
salt and pepper
Whisk all ingredients until smooth. Add more water if too thick.
