'Creamy' Noodle Kale Salad {Two Ways}

We all know the best salads have awesome dressings and these two will not disappoint! They're rich, creamy and full of flavour and nutrients. Combined with kale (or any greens you desire) and noodles the 'creamy' tahini dressings bring the dishes to life.

If cold noodle salads aren't your thing then you can easily make this into a warm noodle salad or a stir fry. 

'Creamy' Harissa Noodle Kale Salad
Makes 1 serve
3 large Kale leaves
1/2 packet Slim Me Noodles (or Rice noodles/Bean noodles etc)
Handful fresh coriander
Sauce
1 tsp harissa spice mix + 0.5 tsp to garnish
1 tbsp soy sauce or tamari
1/4 cup tahini
1/2 cup+ warm water (adjust to desired consistency)
  • Cook desired noodles according to packet instructions
  • Combine sauce ingredients in a jar and shake well until smooth
  • Add sauce to noodles and leave to cool
  • Remove stalks from kale and chop finely
  • Massage kale (like dough) until you feel it soften and lose some volume
  • Combine kale and noodles, tossing well for even sauce coverage
  • Chop coriander and garnish
  • Enjoy!
  • Keeps well in the fridge overnight

This version is mighty similar but with a slightly different flavour profile (and less spicy!) 


'Creamy' Asian Noodle Kale Salad
Makes 1 serve
3 large Kale leaves
1/2 packet Slim Me Noodles (or Rice noodles/Bean noodles etc)
Handful fresh coriander
Sauce
1 tbsp pickled ginger
1 tbsp sesame seeds + 1 tsp to garnish
1 tbsp soy sauce or tamari
1tsp chinese dark vinegar
1/4 cup tahini
1/2 cup+ warm water (adjust to desired consistency)
  • Cook desired noodles according to packet instructions
  • Chop ginger finely
  • Combine sauce ingredients in a jar and shake well until smooth
  • Add sauce to noodles and leave to cool
  • Remove stalks from kale and chop finely
  • Massage kale (like dough) until you feel it soften and lose some volume
  • Combine kale and noodles, tossing well for even sauce coverage
  • Chop coriander and garnish
  • Enjoy!
  • Keeps well in the fridge overnight
As with most things the longer you leave the dressing in the fridge or the noodles in the dressing the stronger (and better) it will get so feel free to make double quantities and keep them around to have with veggies/salads later!

Love and Smiles,
