The crunchy seed topping is the perfect textural juxtaposition to a creamy dressing, soft pears and tender massaged kale salad. Tossing it all with mint, feta and red onion gives it a Middle Eastern flair.

  • Spread pepitas, sesame seeds and sunflower seeds on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake, stirring once, until lightly toasted, about 10 minutes. Immediately scrape the seeds into a medium bowl and toss with oil and 1/8 teaspoon salt. Let cool to room temperature, 10 to 15 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, whisk yogurt, tahini, water, vinegar, lemon juice and the remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Add kale and massage with the dressing to soften the leaves. Add pear, onion and 1/2 cup mint and toss to combine.

  • Serve the salad topped with feta, the remaining 1/2 cup mint and the seeds.

Tips

To make ahead: Store seeds airtight at room temperature and refrigerate dressing for up to 1 day.

I will admit when I mixed the dressing I was skeptical. I mixed it with baby kale and it was actually really good! I added more cider vinegar and lemon juice to add flavor Will make again. Read More

Delicious. I will add more lemon juice to the dressing next time. I didn’t have any mint, so left that out and it was still very good. Read More
