MASSAGED KALE AND AVOCADO SALAD

  • Author: Katja from Savory Lotus
  •  Yield: 34 servings 1x

INGREDIENTS

FOR SALAD:

  • one bunch of kale (I prefer the Lacinato/Dino variety)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil or avocado oil (like this)
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • ¼ tsp sea salt (I use this brand)

FOR DRESSING:

  • one avocado, chopped
  • 1 tbsp olive oil or avocado oil (where to buy good quality, organic olive oil)
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp nutritional yeast (like this)
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • pinch of black pepper
  • 3 tbsp pumpkin seeds for garnish

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Remove hard stem from leaves of kale and place leaves on top of each other. Roll into a tight cigar-looking tube and slice in thin ribbons.
  2. Place kale ribbons into large bowl and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, and salt. Massage the kale for about 2 minutes. It should start to turn a rich, greener color. Set aside.
  3. To make dressing: Combine avocado, olive oil, lemon juice, nutritional yeast, salt and pepper in a small bowl and mash until smooth and creamy. For an even creamier dressing, use a small food processor.
  4. Toss massaged kale with dressing. Garnish pumpkin seeds.
