Orange sesame kale salad

I made a big bowl of my orange sesame kale salad for a family party yesterday. It's colorful, crunchy, and has bold citrusy flavors. There's nothing but good stuff in it with nutrient dense kale, shredded purple cabbage, shredded carrots, sliced onions, parsley leaves, garbanzo beans, orange segments, plus a creamy sesame tahini and orange dressing. I made the carrot flowers by cutting "v" ridges down the side of a carrot, then slicing them thinly on a mandolin.

Orange sesame tahini dressing
1/3 cup tahini (sesame paste)
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 tbsp. lemon juice
zest of 1 orange
1/3 cup orange juice
1/4 tsp. chili pepper flakes
1/2 clove minced garlic
1 tbsp. honey
salt  and pepper
