Chopped kale, avocado, cucumber, green onion, quinoa and apple create an incredible base for this Vegan Protein Kale Salad! It's topped with crunchy pepita seeds, hemp hearts and a delicious Creamy Tahini Dressing for all the plant-based protein and nutrients your body is craving. This salad is vegan, gluten-free, and even nut-free, so it's a colorful and flavorful dish that everyone can enjoy.


Units Scale


  1. Add quinoa to a large single-serving salad bowl.  Top with chopped avocado, diced green onion, diced cucumbers or sliced radishes, chopped apple, cooked quinoa, toasted pepita seeds and hemp hearts.
  2. Drizzle creamy tahini dressing overtop.  Toss and enjoy immediately.


You can use either type of kale.  Usually for this recipe I use curly kale as opposed to lacinato (dino) kale.
