What’s my obsession lately? Raw kale salad.
Maybe it’s the texture of the firm yet chewable kale leaves… or the sea salt… or the creamy avocado…
Maybe it’s a little bit of everything all piled into one great bowl of raw kale.
My kale salads have a guacamole flair with cilantro and red onion. I have NEVER been known to pass by some tasty guacamole and I will not pass the opportunity to make this raw kale salad.
- 2 cups raw kale torn into bite size pieces (no stems!)
- 1-2 tablespoons EVOO
- a few pinches of sea salt
- 1/4 large avocado OR 1/2 small avocado
- 4-5 cherry tomatoes
- 2 tablespoons chopped red onion
- 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
- ground pepper to taste
- 2 teaspoons lime/lemon juice
In a large bowl, add kale pieces oil and salt. With clean hands, massage and rub kale for a good minute OR until kale has been completely covered with oil and is soft. Next add avocado and mix/mush with hands, making sure kale has been completely covered. ( I like to leave some avocado whole)
Next add onion, tomato, red onion, cilantro and pepper. Toss gently with either your hands or utensils.
You can eat right away or feel free to refrigerate prior to eating.
