A few weeks ago in Montauk my friend Rina was raving about the way she makes kale salad — “just massage avocados into it, and that’s your dressing!” — so I obviously had to try it for myself. She was right to rave; it was delicious. B loved it too. In fact I think he finished his plate before me, which is very unusual in our house.
All you need is kale, avocado, lemon, and sea salt. I added a little extra virgin olive oil cause I only had one lonely lime laying around and it needed a bit more liquid. (The lime by the way, was great — but I bet lemon would be even better a la Rina.) She also sprinkles it with parmesan cheese but since I don’t eat dairy I decided to add some pumpkin seeds. The crunch (and added antioxidants) were a perfect addition.
I’d love to hear what you put in your kale salad, or how you prepare yours — so let me know. Either way I can’t think of a better, healthier meal that takes less than 10 minutes to make.
