Edamame Cashew Salad with Honey-Tahini Dressing


 With the holidays right around the corner, it's nice to keep some healthy, protein packed recipes on the menu to round things out. This salad comes together in no time and is so delicious thanks to the sweet and salty dressing. Serve this at dinner with grilled chicken or pack it up for a perfectly portable lunch.


1. Combine dressing ingredients in a food processor or blender until smooth. Adjust seasonings as needed and set aside. 


2. Place kale in a large mixing bowl. Pour 1/2 dressing over the kale and massage with your (clean!) hands for 1 minute.



3. Add the carrot, edamame, cashews, raisins and remaining dressing and toss to coat. Serve immediately.
