  • 2 cups baby Kale
  • 2 cups Steamed Yam, diced
  • 2 cups Quinoa, cooked
  • 1 cup Zucchini, diced
  • 1 cup Cherry Tomatoes
  • 2 cups Edamame, steamed
  • 1 cup Shimiji Mushroom
  • 2 cups Broccoli, steamed
  • 1 cup Watermelon Radish
  • 1 cup Red Cabbage, shredded
  • 1.5 Tbsp. Hemp Seeds

Tamarind Dressing:

  • 3/4 cup Tamarind Nectar
  • 1/4 tsp. Sea Salt
  • 3/4 cup Drinking Water
  • 1 tsp. Madras Curry Powder

To make the dressing, place all of the ingredients into a blender and process until smooth. If you'd like it thinner, simply add more water and a touch of lemon. Adjust any of the flavors as you see fit.


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F.
  2. Steam the yams and let them cool.
  3. Cook the quinoa and let it cool.

  5. Blanch the edamame and let it cool.
  6. Blanch the broccoli and let it cool.
  7. Peel and slice or spiralize the watermelon radish.
  8. Shave the cabbage thin, using a mandoline or a knife, and toss it in a touch of lemon juice.

To assemble:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine all the prepared ingredients.
  2. Pour the Tamarind Date Dressing over the salad and toss everything together.
  3. Season with salt and pepper to your liking.
  4. Divide the salad mix between 4 serving bowls.
