Caesarstone Recipes by Isabel Smith: Kale and Avocado Salad

I love a fresh salad, especially when it’s crispy, loaded with nutrients, and best of all- easy to make. This kale salad is made with just a few ingredients (that you may already have in your refrigerator!) and is dressed with a heart-healthy avocado and a delicious lemon and olive oil dressing. The key to this kale salad (and any kale salad) is massaging the avocado and/or the dressing with your hands- it makes the kale leaves softer and more palatable to taste.

Serve this salad as a part of a meal or even as a snack. Enjoy!

Ingredients:
Salad:
½ bunch kale (3 leaves or so), washed and torn off the stem (2″ pieces)
1/3 avocado, smashed and massaged into the kale with hands
2 tbsp apple, chopped
2 tbsp yellow bell pepper, chopped
1 tbsp pumpkin seeds

Dressing:
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp lemon juice

Directions:
1. Wash and prepare the kale leaves- tear off of the stem and dry, then place into a mixing bowl or a salad serving bowl.
2. Add in avocado smashed and mix (or massage) with your hands, then drizzle the dressing over the salad.
3. Add apple, yellow bell pepper, and pumpkin seeds as garnish.
4. Serve and enjoy!
