Curly Kale Salad with Avocado
While shopping yesterday at SOTJ market presented by The Market Umbrella I was really looking forward to my first greens of the season. I was also looking for something different than the collards I had done in the past. Thanks goes out to Adam over at Fertile Crescent Farm. Curly kale is what he suggested, pointing me in the direction of recipes on his website. The unique part to this salad was the rubbing of a ripe avocado with lemon juice throughout the salad.
Do yourself a favor - visit your local farmers market and give this salad a try. I promise you will not be disappointed.
2 Bunches kale, washed, dried and chopped
1/2 medium red onion, chopped
1 medium apple, seeded and chopped
2 teaspoons minced garlic
2 teaspoons fresh ginger, peeled and grated
1 whole, ripe avocado, peeled and chopped
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons Tamari soy sauce or Bragg's Amino Acids
1/2 cup cashews, raw, chopped
Wash, de-stem and chop kale. Place in large bowl. Add lemon juice and avocado. Mix together with your hands until the avocado is smooth. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Serve immediately and enjoy!
Thanks Adam (above) for some wonderful kale and an even better recipe to be shared for years to come! I really wish I had this recipe back during my 12 day vegan challenge!
