Rainbow Falafel Salad with Tahini Dressing

  • Author: Maša Ofei
  • Total Time: 20 minutes*
  • Yield: 2


A falafel salad with a twist of bright colours and flavours. A perfect easy, and healthy salad with a super simple tahini dressing.




  • 3 kale leaves, removed from the stem, roughly chopped
  • 1½ cups purple cabbage, thinly sliced (about ¼ small cabbage) 
  • 1 cup carrot, grated (1 medium-sized carrot)
  • ¾ cup coriander/cilantro, finely chopped (about 2 bunches)
  • ½ cup mint, finely chopped (optional)
  • ⅓ cup flaked or slivered almonds
  • ⅓ cup goji berries (or sultanas)

Tahini Dressing:


  1. Make the falafels (if not using store-bought).
  2. To make the salad, place the kale in a large mixing bowl and massage for a couple of minutes to soften it.
  3. Add the rest of the salad ingredients and mix well.
  4. Make the tahini dressing and pour it over the salad. Toss well to coat all the ingredients and serve in bowls, adding four falafels to each plate. 
  5. Enjoy straight away or store in an airtight container for up to 2 days. Falafels are best enjoyed when warm. 


* Total time doesn’t include making the falafels. However, it does include time for the tahini dressing.
