Raw Kale Avocado Salad

This is one of my favorite kale recipes because it is so simple, yet so good. I always get lots of kale in my produce box, so I need other ways to use it besides juicing! And I usually don’t plan ahead very well, so this works perfect for that, since I most likely have all the ingredients already:)

All you need is:

  • Bunch of kale
  • Avocado
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Lemon juice
  • Dried cranberries (or raisins, etc)
  • Sliced nuts or seeds (optional but good) – I usually do almonds or pumpkin seeds
  • Veggies (optional but good) – I add whatever I have on hand, usually tomato, bell pepper or shredded carrots

All of the quantities are basically to taste. I usually do 1/2 an avocado with a bunch of kale to make about 2 large servings. Because I love my greens haha.

Steps:

  1. Rinse kale, de-stem and tear into pieces
  2. Remove skin and pit from avocado
  3. Massage avocado into kale with your hands until it is evenly distributed and the kale is soft (messy but the best way to do it!)
  4. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar and lemon juice and toss to coat
  5. Add dried fruit, nuts and veggies as desired

Done! And as always, gluten-free:)
