Kale Salad with Creamy Goddess Dressing (Vegan, Gluten Free)

If you think you hate kale, I bet you’ll change your mind once you try this kale salad with goddess dressing. It’s savory, creamy, and kind of addicting! Add whatever salad toppings you like to this salad.


  • 8 cups chopped kale
  • 1/3 cup tahini
  • 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup avocado oil
  • 1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp low sodium tamari (sub soy sauce if not gluten free)
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/4 cup chives, roughly chopped
  • Salad toppings of choice


  1. Wash and dry kale, and place in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Combine the remaining ingredients in a food processor to make the goddess dressing. Blend for about 1 minute until everything is well combined and super creamy.
  3. Pour a generous amount of dressing over the kale (you will have some left over). I used about half. Use your hands to massage the dressing into the kale leaves. Continue for a minute or two until leaves are soft and well coated in dressing.
  4. Portion into bowls and top with desired salad toppings.


  • The tahini I used was salted. If you use unsalted tahini, you may need to add a dash of salt to taste.
  • This salad keeps well in the fridge for a few days.
