If I ever get stuck on a deserted island, let’s hope it’s overgrown with kale and avocados. I’m borderline obsessed with kale avocado salads. They are the easiest thing to throw together, and if you do it right it’s incredibly delicious. Kale is one of the most nutrient-dense foods available, and pairing it with creamy avocado makes the perfect healthy salad. I make kale avocado salads in lots of different ways – so experiment with what works for you – but here are the basics on how to make it taste great.
- 1 bunch kale, washed and ripped into pieces
- ½ avocado, cut into chunks
- 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
- Juice from 1 lemon
- ½ tsp sea salt
- Pinch of cayenne
- 1 tbsp pine nuts or pumpkin seeds
Massage olive oil, lemon juice and salt into the kale with your hands for a few minutes until the kale becomes soft. Add avocado, nuts/seeds and cayenne.
