Kale Avocado Salad

Thursday, January 12th, 2012

Still harvesting winter kale?  My friend Matt Gossage gave me the recipe for this salad.  I tried it for myself a few nights ago and decided to share it.  The avocado gives a creamy texture to the salad.

Kale Avocado Salad


  • One large bunch kale
  • Two ripe avocados
  • Fresh lemon juice
  • Salt
  • Course ground black pepper

Remove the stems from the kale and chop.  In a large bowl add ½ tsp salt.  Massage the salt into the kale with your hands and then let sit for 20 minutes.

Taste the kale to see if it is too salty.  You may need to rinse it once to remove any excess salt.  If you do rinse it, press out as much water as you can.

Add two chopped avocados, fresh ground black pepper and the juice of one-third to one-half lemon.  Mix and serve.
