Kale-Barley salad with lemon tahini dressing

salad: kale (shredded), tomatoes, red onion, barley, shredded carrot, to your liking

Tahini-Lemon Dressing.
Yield: Just under 1 cup of dressing

* 1/4 cup Tahini
* 2 garlic cloves
* 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice (about 2 lemons)
* 2-4 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil, to taste
* 1 tsp salt + freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
* 3 tbsp water, or as needed

2 large or 3 small very ripe bananas
1/4 cup applesauce
1/4 cup oil
1/2 cup sugar (plus more if needed)
2 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan.

In a large mixing bowl, mash the bananas really well. Add the sugar, applesauce, oil, and whisk briskly to incorporate.

Sift in the flour, baking soda, spices, and salt. Use a wooden spoon to mix until the wet and dry ingredients are just combined. If you’re using chocolate chips or nuts, fold them in here.
– taste

Transfer the batter to the prepared pan and bake for 45 to 50 minutes (it took 50 for me). The topa should be lightly browned and a knife inserted through the center should come out clean.

Remove from the oven and let cool!
