Jerk Seasoned Warm Veggie Salad With Tahini Miso Dressing

A quick and easy warm salad recipe to satisfy your hunger with a healthy dose of protein and green what-nots! 🙂 A warm salad is sort of like a stir fry, but without the carb (rice, noodles,etc.)
If you don’t have jerk seasoning (a Jamaican staple!) – this is a great how-to! Ian and I were fortunate to get a great jerk seasoning in Jamaica when we visited last year (Ocho Rios)! We cook with jerk seasoning at least once a week.

Jerk Seasoned Warm Veggie Salad With Tahini Miso Dressing


For the Dressing

  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp tamari soy sauce
  • 1 extra large garlic cloves, or 2 small-medium cloves
  • 1/2 tsp raw miso

For the pan/warm stuff

  • 2 tbsp jerk seasoning
  • Olive oil to coat the pan
  • 1/2 can chickpeas, rinsed
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 1/2 a bunch of kale, ripped with stems removed
  • 3/4 cup dandelion greens, ripped up

Raw stuff

  • 2 cups raw greens
  • Micro greens or sprouts for garnish


  1. Combine all dressing ingredients – set aside. (until mostly blended/mixed up)
  2. Add the olive oil to the frying pan, turn on the burner, etc.
  3. When the pan is ready to go, add the carrots. Cook for 4-5 minutes.
  4. Then add the kale. Cook for 2-5 minutes.
  5. Now the chickpeas. 3-5 minutes. Add 1 tbsp (or 1/2)  jerk seasoning.
  6. Lastly, the dandelion greens, for 2-3 minutes. Add remaining jerk seasoning.
  7. While that’s cooking, combine the raw ingredients in a bowl. Set some (or all) of the micro greens aside for garnish.
  8. Once the dandelion is a bit less fibrous (ours was extremely rough and fibrous), take off heat.
  9. Combine the dressing and warm ingredients in a bowl, saving a little dressing if desired (for raw stuff)
  10. From there, its all you. I personally just threw the raw stuff in the bowl, mixed and served. You may more the type to put the raw stuff in your bowl/on your plate, so you decide! 🙂

Serves 2
This recipe was all me! 🙂 Hope you felt inspired to try it, or remix it! 😀
