Kale Salad with Tahini-Lemon Dressing

Hi friends, I'm back!  The last 3 years I've ended up gaining back some of the weight I lost. Luckily not all of, actually not quite half of it.  Now I'm ready to get back to where I was with healthy eating and working out! 

I've been back on plan for about 2 1/2 weeks now and I'm down 6 lbs.  I joined and it's really kept me motivated. If you aren't familiar with Dietbet it's a website where you put money up (mine was $20 a month for 6 months) and bet that you will lose the weight they set in the challenge you joined.  If you make it until the end you can collect all the money in the pot from those that either dropped out or didn't reach their goal!  It seems to be really be keeping me on track! 

On to the salad...I love kale. Kale is so much heartier than lettuce and much more chewing is required so it's more satisfying to me.  For this salad I grilled some chicken thighs and added tomatoes, a little low-fat feta cheese, toasted walnuts and yummy homemade Tahini-Lemon Dressing.  Here is the recipe I used for the dressing

Tahini-Lemon Dressing
1/2 cup Tahini
3/4 cup of water (more or less depending on the consistency you like)
Juice from 1-2 lemons (I like mine lemony)
1 garlic clove finely minced
salt and pepper

Whisk all ingredients together. 

That's it for today but I hope to be posting here more often and I even started a Fit and Fabulous Over 50 Instagram page so follow me there!
