Curried Butternut Squash Salad

I am always looking for new lunchtime ideas.  This salad is delicious, nutritious and so easy to prepare.  I just love the roasted butternut squash, the curried dressing, healthy kale and toasted nuts- all the high notes in my kitchen!

To serve two


3 tbsp    curried tahini dressing
1/2 cup  chickpeas
2 tbsp    cilantro
2 cups   butternut squash, roasted and diced
handful  kale, chopped into bite size pieces
1/2 cup  toasted walnuts

Place all the ingredients, except the walnuts in a bowl, toss with the tahini dressing, top with walnuts and serve.  Easy!

Tahini dressing:
3 tbsp   olive oil
1 tbsp   white balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp   tahini
2 tsp     lemon juice
pinch of salt
pepper to taste
1 tsp    curry powder

Put all the ingredients into a small mason jar.  Close the lid tightly and shake to combine.
