The flavor and texture of raw kale can be an acquired taste, but when it is massaged with luscious avocado and citrus it transforms into a delicate and delightful leafy green. Serve this insanely quick, easy, and delicious salad to a crowd or whip up as a weekday lunch.

Ingredients

  • 2 bunches lacinato kale
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 lemon
  • Pinch of salt
  • 4 slices whole grain bread
Optional Extras:
  • Toasted nuts or seeds (chopped pecans, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, cashews, hemp seeds)
  • Chopped fresh herbs (parsley, basil, cilantro)
  • Other chopped vegetables
  • Chickpeas
  • Baked tofu
  • Tempeh bacon
  • Cooked whole grains (quinoa, brown rice, farro)

Instructions

  1. Strip kale from its stalks, wash, and chop into small pieces. Place in a large bowl.
  2. Slice open avocado, remove pit, and scoop into the bowl with the kale. Squeeze lemon juice into the bowl as well. Add salt.
  3. With clean hands, massage and mix kale, smashing the avocado as you go. Continue until kale begins to soften and the smashed avocado is relatively evenly distributed.
  4. While kale mixture rests in the refrigerator, toast bread (if you’d like to give bread more flavor, drizzle with olive oil or spread with a dairy-free butter before toasting). Once the bread cools a little, chop into bite-size squares and mix into the kale. Fold in any other optional ingredients.
