This hearty kale avocado salad is one that I've been making FOREVER and I've just never gotten around to showing it to you! But this week I shared 3 easy summer salads that are fresh and entirely green and this was one of them. Check out the full video below or keep scrolling for the recipe!
** makes 2 large or 4 small servings
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 lemon, juice
3 tbsp olive oil or avocado oil
1 tsp dijon mustard
6 C finely chopped kale, stems removed
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 avocado, diced
2 tbsp finely chopped red onion
1/4 C dried black currants
1/4 C pumpkin seeds
1/2 C shredded vegan parmesan (optional)
ground pepper, to taste
Combine the dressing ingredients in a jar and shake well.
Massage the finely chopped kale in a large mixing bowl with 1/4 tsp sea salt with your hands until wilted and deeper green in color. This takes about 2 minutes.
Add red onion, avocado, currants, pumpkin seeds, vegan parmesan (reserving some for the top), and ground pepper to the kale and toss until well combined in all of the dressing. Serve immediately!
The salad keeps well for 1 day in the fridge even with dressing on it but it's best eaten immediately.
