Its finally cooling down in LA! So today we have an in-between summer-fall salad; our Roasted Chickpea and Kale Salad with a Creamy Tahini Yogurt Dressing! I know it’s fully fall and has been for a few weeks, but it’s been sweltering in LA until VERY recently, so that’s why this is our in-between seasons salad. Lol. I really love this salad and it’s something I’ll make often when I can’t decide what to make and eat. I love the hearty kale with the creamy dressing, but my favorite part is the roasted chickpeas! They just pop with flavor in your mouth, plus it’s a great way to bulk up a salad!

I’m so glad the weather is cooling down in these parts, so I can enjoy this salad to the fullest, without fearing of melting away. lol. Enjoy! xx, Jenny

    I just learned how to make tahini dressing and now I want it on everything. My kids get out their dressings and dips and then they get out my mason jar of tahini dressing, known as “mommy’s dip.”
