Raw Kale Avocado Salad(1 serving=2 cups)

Submitted by: PETALIA

Introduction

Adapted from "The Whole Life Nutrition Kitchen" blog. Adapted from "The Whole Life Nutrition Kitchen" blog.
Number of Servings: 5

Ingredients

    1 bunch curly kale, chopped (about 8 to 10 cups)
    2 avocados, diced (Not in nutritional info)
    1/3 cup sunflower seeds, soaked for 6 to 8 hours

    Dressing:
    4 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
    2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
    3 cloves garlic, crushed
    1/2 teaspoon Herbamare or sea salt
    freshly ground black pepper


Tips

The nutritional information does not include the avocados. Add avocado to each individual serving.


Directions

Serve this salad alone as a super food meal or serve it over cooked quinoa with a bean soup. If you plan to keep the salad for a few days in your refrigerator then wait to add the avocado to each individual serving. Feel free to add other seasonal vegetables to the salad. Grated carrots, grated beets, diced heirloom tomatoes, or chopped parsley would all be delicious.

Chop the kale into small pieces and add it to a large bowl. In a smaller, separate bowl whisk together the dressing. Add the dressing to the salad and gently massage it into the kale with your hands. This will soften it almost immediately. Then add the diced avocado. Drain and rinse the sunflower seeds and add them to the salad as well. Gently toss together.

Serving Size: Makes 5 2 heaping cup servings
