Shaved Kale Avocado Salad

Cooking, for some us, is a very enjoyable activity and for others it seems like a rather daunting task.  However, cooking your food is such an important component to healthy eating. When you cook your food not only is it easier to plan your meals but you can also control the ingredients that are put into your food.  For those of us who are new to cooking, I suggest starting off with very simple and quick recipes.

The Shaved, Avocado Salad is one of my absolute favorites because you basically just toss all the ingredients in a large bowl, mix them together and that’s it! How simple is that? Simple, Nutritious, and Delicious…! :) Give it a try and let me know how you liked it!


Kale Avocado Salad Ingredients

1 head Kale, shredded (or about 4 cups/ 3-4 leaves)
1 cup tomato or red bell pepper, diced
1 cup avocado, chopped
2 1/2 tablespoons olive oil or flax oil
1 1/2 tablespoons of lemon juice
1 teaspoon of sea salt
1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper

In mixing bowl toss all ingredients, squeezing as you mix to “wilt” the kale and cream the avocado.
Serve Immediately.

As a variation, add chopped fresh herbs or your choice of diced vegetables. You can also substitute swiss chard or spinach for the kale.
