The Kale Salad of Awesome

18 May

This salad is definitely a healthy treat. Last summer I had the chance to have some of this great salad when a friend of my mine passed down the recipe. WARNING, this is a hearty filling salad and may become addictive, that is why I call it The Kale Salad of Awesome.

For this Recipe you will need

1 large bunch of Kale
1 one medium/large ripe avocado
2 carrots
1 lemon
1 garlic clove, or more if desired
Olive oil

1. de-stem Kale ( remove all the tough spines on the leaves)
2. Pour olive oil on kale ( be generous)
3. massage bit size leaves with olive oil until all the leaves are coated
4. let it soak up the oil while you…
Wait about 15 minutes. Time you can use to prepare the other ingredients.
5. cut up the carrots julienne style
6.cut the avocado in two halves cut lengthwise and crosswise incisions into the meat
7. juice the lemon the garlic
9. Salt the kale leaves generously and TOSS
10. Add lemon juice, avocados and carrots

This salad is awesome for many reasons:
Reason number one, the ingredients are super healthy ! Kale is amazing, I usually buy mine at Rachelle Berry, its fresh and organic and yummy. Reason number two with regards to awesomeness, is the textures in the salad the ripe avocado and the hearty kale leaves are a great contrast that is enchanced by the garlic and lemon. Reason number three, the salad will not wilt even with the dressing after a night in teh fridge. So you can definitely make this salad to have the next day.

If you have any questions drop me a line!

Have a happy kale time !

    Finally made the Kale Salad of Awesomeness and you were right: it is awesome!! Zora strategically and patiently waited by my feet in the kitchen while I was making it, until she was rewarded with a clove of raw garlic I accidentally dropped. I’m pretty sure it’s not safe for dogs, but by the time I pried open her mouth, there was nothing left but the skin. Oh well, she’s eaten worst, so here’s to your delicious salad and to hoping Zora’s stomach is as hardy as it has been in the past. 🙂
