Love Kale Salads!

Nothing better than a kale salad--of any kind. I enjoyed this as an all green kale salad. I added avocado, green olives, olive oil, lemon juice and sprinkled it with pine nuts.

Kale salads are so quick and easy to put together. I just make sure that my additions are hardy enough to stand up to the firm kale--red pepper is one of my favorites to add. Avocado can be put in as chunks or can be massaged into the kale leaves. Raisins are also nice in this salad.

To soften the kale, just add your lemon juice, a tiny drizzle of olive oil, and a sprinkle of celtic sea salt. Then, using your hands, rub all your kale bites together. This will break it down, and the lemon juice will help wilt it a bit.

My absolute favorite salad!
