Massaged Kale Salad

by alexis

Yes, kale needs a massage once in a while too. Even better that it’s done with avocado, that is the dressing.

This is such a delicious salad – every one loves it when served at a dinner party.  It also makes for a fun conversation in the kitchen while it’s being made.

1 bunch of organic kale, washed, leaves torn from stems
1/2 – 3/4 avocado
1 organic tomato, cut up
1/2 cup walnuts, toasted (8 minutes in a toaster oven at 350)
Sea salt (and fresh cracked black pepper), to taste

  • Toast your walnuts (be careful, don’t burn them)
  • Place torn up kale leaves into large serving/mixing bowl
  • Scoop avocado out of skin into bowl with kale
  • Gently but thoroughly massage avocado into the kale
  • Season with sea salt and optional pepper
  • Add tomatoes and toasted walnuts
  • Toss to mix – don’t over mix
