Raw Kale Avocado Salad

KaleFor those of you who know me well, you know that one of my favorite superfoods is KALE!

 All this talk about environmental toxins and how they are wreaking havoc on our hormones, kale is an excellent detox food to help keep your liver happy and healthy. It is also high in Vitamin C, A, K, calcium, and iron.

 The recipe below is from one of my favorite websites, www.nourishingmeals.com.

Serve this salad alone as a super food meal or serve it over cooked quinoa with a bean soup. If you plan to keep the salad for a few days in your refrigerator, wait to add the avocado to each individual serving.

Also, feel free to add other seasonal vegetables to the salad. Grated carrots, grated beets, diced heirloom tomatoes, or chopped parsley would all be delicious. 


Raw Kale Avocado Salad



  • 1 bunch curly kale, chopped (about 8 to 10 cups)
  • 2 avocados, diced
  • 1 cup sunflower seeds, soaked for 6 to 8 hours

Dressing :

  • 3 to 4 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice 
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 
  • 1 to 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  •  1/2 teaspoon Herbamare or sea salt
  • freshly ground black pepper

Chop the kale into small pieces and add it to a large bowl. In a smaller, separate bowl whisk together the dressing. Add the dressing to the salad and gently massage it into the kale with your hands. This will soften it almost immediately. Then add the diced avocado. Drain and rinse the sunflower seeds and add them to the salad as well. Gently toss together.
