Once again, a recipe that isn’t really a recipe! However, kale is super easy to grow and strawberry season is around the corner. If this salad convinces you to grow some kale or eat some organic berries, then my job here is done. Since I am a crazy person in the kitchen, I don’t measure anything. You shouldn’t either. You know what you like, give yourself enough to have multiple elements in every bite and a little extra of the things you enjoy the most. That wasn’t technical, but it works everytime. Kale (or any winter green) is bitter, so you need some sweetness and some acid to balance it out. The strawberries could be switched for whatever fruit you have on hand. The lemon in the dressing could be switched for your favorite vinegar.
Kale, Strawberry, Avocado Salad w/Chia Citrus Dressing
kale, stems removed and leaves chopped
organic strawberries, hulled, halved
a couple glugs of EVOO
juice of half a lemon
zest of a lemon
pinch of salt and pepper
dollop of honey
1/4 tsp chia seeds
Chop all the salad ingredients into bite size pieces and toss together. Whisk all the dressing ingredients together and pour over salad. Kale is hearty, so even a dressed salad can store nicely in the fridge.
