1 bunch green raw kale, thinly sliced
1 Haas avocado
1 fresh lemon (or 2 TBS. lemon juice)
3 cloves garlic, minced (or 1 tsp. granulated garlic)
1 tsp. ginger root, minced (or 1/2 tsp. granulated ginger)
1/2 sweet onion, chopped
1 large apple (pink lady, fuji, gala & honeycrisp work well), chopped
1/2 cup unsalted cashews
Roll up each kale leaf tightly like a burrito and slice thin, chiffonade-style; add to bowl. Scoop out the avocado flesh and add to bowl; then add lemon (or lime) juice. Tip: to juice a citrus fruit, slice in half and rotate a spoon around the inside rind of the fruit, twisting around the perimeter. Don't worry if you get a few lemon seeds in your salad, it adds crunch! :)
Now the fun part - get your hands in there and squish the avocado up with your fingers, massaging it into the kale until the avocado is not chunky and all the leaves are thinly coated. Donít be afraid to really press the dressing into the leaves and work it in with your fingers; the more you play with it, the softer the kale will get.
Add the garlic, ginger, onion, and apple. Stir well, plate and sprinkle with raw cashews. Yum!
