Ever since my friend, Emily introduced me to the Avocado-Kale salad from Whole Foods, I crave it at least once a week.  Because Whole Foods isn’t on my daily path, the price they charge for it, and the temptation of samples on every corner I decided to make my own version of the salad.  If you would rather try the WF version you can find it at the Raw Food Bar.  The original version uses diced purple onions, but Rick doesn’t like onions and I’d rather have it with tomatoes…so….without further adieu:

Kale Avocado Salad

-1 big bunch of kale
-1/2 avocado (or more depending on how creamy your want it)
-8-9 grape tomatoes
-olive oil
-sea salt
-cracked pepper

Wash your hands and get a big bowl, cause you’re gonna get dirty!  Rinse the kale and tear into pieces, place in bowl. Half the avocado, scrape it out, mash it in a separate bowl.  Dice the tomatoes and add to the kale bowl.  Sprinkle (or as I like to say, Sprankle) some olive oil over the kale and tomato mixture (prob more like drizzle).  Last add the avocado.  Sprankle desired amount of sea salt and pepper and get down and dirty with the bowl.  I mean, both hands in, tossing all of the ingredients until the kale is coated.

Serve, Enjoy, Refrigerate and then Enjoy again! You can also find Lauren’s version here.
