Kale Avocado Salad Recipe

This fresh and entirely green kale salad is paired perfectly with avocado, delicious toppings and a simple, delicate dressing.

Salad Ingredients:

  • 2 bunches of kale, stem removed
  • 1 cup carrots, shredded
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, sliced
  • 2 avocados, sliced
  • ½ cup slivered almonds
  • Broccoli or sunflower sprouts to top
  • ½ cup grain of choice if desired
  • ( I like farro or wheatberries)

Dressing Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 4 tbsp avocado oil
  • ½ tsp garlic, grated
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp pepper


1. Wash kale in a colander. Massage leaves with your hands for 2-3 minutes

2. Chop kale into bite sized pieces

3. Toss kale, carrots and almonds together in a bowl

4. To make the dressing, add all ingredients to a bowl and whisk until thoroughly combined

5. Add dressing to kale mixture and toss well

6. Add cherry tomatoes and avocado. Toss again to distribute

7. Add in grain of choice

8. Top with sprouts and serve

Tip: Giving the kale a quick rub makes it less tough and chewy! It’s definitely worth the 2-3 minutes of prep time.
