Kale Salad

This is currently my favorite dinner. The first night I made it I accidentally grabbed the chinese 5 spice instead of the sesame seeds. Not recommended. :-)

Massaged Kale Salad

About 3-4 generous cups washed and chopped kale

1/4-1/2 avocado

2 tbsp olive oil (or as needed)

Juice of 1/3 of a lemon

1 small tomato, chopped

½ large carrot, grated

A few slices of red and yellow pepper chopped into bite sized pieces

a little red onion finely sliced

Sea salt


Pour 2 tbsp (more/less if needed) olive oil over kale, and sprinkle with sea salt as desired. With clean hands, “massage” the kale so that all of the oil is coating it and it begins to “wilt.” Throw in the avocado and massage it, too, so that the whole bowl of kale becomes well coated with oil and avocado.

Sprinkle on lemon juice as desired, and throw in tomato, carrots, and any other veggies you desire! Top with sesame seeds if you like.
