Raw Kale and Avocado Salad
1 small head kale, chopped (discard stems)
1-2 tablespoons evoo (extra-virgin olive oil)
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 avocado, diced
1-2 tomatoes, chopped
1/4 cup onion, thinly sliced (I use purple onion)
juice of half a lemon
optional toppings: pine nuts, raisins, hempseed nuts, sesame seeds...
Since you'll be using your hands to mix up this salad, it's a good idea to have all the ingredients measured out and prepared before you begin.
Place chopped kale in large bowl; sprinkle with evoo and hand toss until thoroughly mixed. I like to scrunch a little and get my hands really dirty as I do this. Sprinkle sea salt over kale; hand toss again. Add diced avocado to kale and hand toss again. Add tomatoes and onion; mix. Sprinkle lemon juice over kale mixture; mix. Add any additional toppings and mix.
Pine nuts grace this particular batch of salad
This is such a great salad to have as a lunch, or even as a light dinner during the summer months. This is one of my favorite "unusual" salads to prepare. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
New photo below!! I added chopped cooked chicken to this salad for a meal in itself. It was incredibly delicious! I also used baby kale, since Costco had a huge bag of organic baby kale available. Super-yummy!!
