Synchro Salad Recipe 3.0 - Kale-Sweet Potato With Ginger Cashew-Tahini Dressing

This is the third iteration of the Synchro Salad recipe (find version two here).  Like the previous versions, this salad is designed to be filling, deeply nourishing and so delicious that you crave it. 

Every ingredient in this salad provides nutritional value.  The nutrient-rich, anti-inflammatory kale, the amino-complete hemp protein, the clean-carbohydrate Japanese sweet potatoes, the high-quality fats in the dressing, etc.

This recipe can be keto-adapted easily, simply reduce the sweet potato by 1/2 or omit altogether.


Synchro Salad 3.0

Serves: 2  / /  Prep time: 30 min


1 Medium Bunch of Kale (Lacinato is best)

1 Japanese Sweet Potato, Roasted

Ginger Cashew-Tahini Dressing

1/2 cup Raw Hemp Seeds


1. Follow instructions below for Roasted Sweet Potato.

2. While the sweet potatoes are roasting, follow instructions below for making Ginger Cashew-Tahini Dressing.

3. Tear kale into small pieces and add to a large bowl.  Rinse thoroughly. Set aside.

4. Pour dressing onto kale and toss lightly until the dressing is well-distributed. Then add roasted sweet potatoes (while warm is best) and hemp seeds. Toss thoroughly. Tossing thoroughly after adding the potatoes will allow some of the sweetness from the potatoes to mix with the dressing.
