This week I will indulge once again in my avocado obsession and give you a very easy and extremely delicious kale salad recipe with an exotic/Mediterranean twist. Oh fusion cuisine how much I love you!

Ingredients

  1. 2 cups kale, destemmed and finely chopped
  2. about 1 lemon or lime, juiced and strained (amount depends on size and juiciness)
  3. 2 tbsps extra virgin olive oil
  4.  salt and pepper to taste
  5. nutritional yeast to taste (the more the better)
  6. 2 ripe avocados (plan it in advance or good luck)
  7. 1/2 cup pine nuts or other nuts, toasted (optional)

 

  1. Chop the kale and place in a large bowl.
  2. Massage with olive oil (it gets rid of the fibrousness of the kale)
  3. Pour the lemon juice onto the kale
  4. Add the olive oil, sea salt, pepper, nutritional yeast, avocado, and pine nuts (or other nuts) to the bowl, reserving some toasted nuts for topping.
  5. Mush the avocados a as you mix it, still leaving them a bit chunky.
  6. Top with additional toasted pine nuts.

Extras: pomegranate can be a nice addition if you want to add some sweetness and you can find them 🙂
