Kale Salad with Avocado and Almonds

Active Time: 15 minutes   |   Total Time: 15 minutes   |   Serves Serves 4  |  Vegan  |  Gluten Free

  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice (from about 2 limes)
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 small bunch kale
  • 1 avocado

Place a small skillet on the stove and add the almonds. Turn the heat on to medium. Stir or shake the almonds often (so they cook evenly), until toasted and fragrant, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl to let cool.

In a small bowl, whisk together the lime juice, oil, honey, salt and pepper.

Pull the kale leaves from the tough stems; discard the stems. Tear the leaves into bite-size pieces (about 10 cups) and put into a salad spinner. Wash, spin dry, and add to a large salad bowl.

Using a chef’s knife, cut the avocado in half and remove the pit. Place the two halves, cut-side up, on cutting board. Use the tip of your paring knife to carefully slice into the avocado flesh, making a crosshatch pattern (do not cut through the skin). Then scoop out with a spoon and add to the salad.

Add the toasted almonds and vinaigrette to the salad and toss well with tongs.
