Lately I have been obsessed with Kale. I have made Kale chips, Kale smoothies and now my favorite Kale Salad. I am seriously in love with Kale salad. The one thing that I have learned on how to make a delicious kale salad is to massage the kale. That makes it nice and tender. Kale can sometimes be a little bitter, but if you find the right patch it can be absolutely divine. I also wanted this kale salad to have some friends; so I added a couple different things. I hope you enjoy it, and by the way it was so good that my kids (3 and 4 yrs old) loved it. The benefits that you are getting out of this salad is outstanding.
1 Bunch of Kale (stalks removed)
Juice from a Lemon
½ Cup of Extra Virgin Olive oil
Salt and Black Peppercorn (to taste)
1 Avocado, diced
1 small red onion, diced (or half of a medium one)
1 Orange bell pepper (tip: when buying bell peppers, turn them upside down and if it has 3 bumps it means its nice and sweet which is great for eating it raw and 4 bumps is usually good for cooking with)
1 tomato, diced
Shaved almonds for topping
In a large bowl, add the kale, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Start to massage until the kale starts to soften and wilt, should take about 2 minutes or so. Afterwards add all of your diced veggies to the party, and if you would like to add protein to the mix go for it. I added some little pieces of chicken breast. Topped with some shaved almonds.
