Sometimes you have to take the gloves off when it comes to your health. 😂 Kale being one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet, I try to find ways to get this leafy green into my diet daily. So many people have told me that they don't like kale raw because of the coarse texture. Getting your hands messy and massaging your kale is the secret to soft, delicious kale.
This Yummy Kale and Avocado Salad is fast, delicious and packed with nutrient-goodness.
Yummy Kale and Avocado Salad has 5 key ingredients:
- kale (curly works best)
- miso paste
- nutritional yeast
Start by smashing the avocado with a fork or wooden spoon. Then stir in lemon juice, miso paste, and water. The key is to massage chopped kale into the avocado mixture until the kale is soft. Then sprinkle the nutritional yeast, and give it a quick toss.
Do you want your kids to fall in love with kale? This Yummy Kale and Avocado Salad is so kid-friendly as well. My daughter loves to get her hands messy, and she eats a big bowl every time.
Optional add-ons include Roasted Chickpeas or sliced red bell pepper.

Yummy is right! I tried this this today and was so surprised at the great flavour. The tang from the lemon is perfect and the avocado really helped to soften the kale when massaged (who knew) Even my 12 and 7 year old ate without complaints as a side on their lunch plate.
