Salads are always an easy meal to make regardless of the season. While we used Lightlife Tempeh Bacon, you can always substitute it with your favorite plant-based “bacon”.


For the salad, combine:
1 package of ready-to-eat Lightlife Tempeh Smoky Bacon, cubed
8 cups kale, chopped
1 cup cooked quinoa, cooled* (optional for extra protein and fiber)
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1 bell pepper, diced
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds

For the tahini dressing, whisk together:
1/4 cup tahini
3 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt


Fold dressing into the salad ingredients and enjoy!
