Marinated Kale Salad
The salad that makes us crave kale! Easy marinated kale salad with avocado, tomato, and a super simple dressing.
Prep Time20 minutes
Total Time20 minutes
- 1 large bunch organic kale (curly or lacinato)
- 1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes
- 1/2 small red onion
- 1/2 avocado
- 1/4 cup sunflower seeds (for topping)
For the dressing
- 3 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
- 2 Tbsp. tamari (or soy sauce)
- 1 Tbsp. olive oil (omit for oil-free)
Tear kale into bite-size pieces (stems removed). Place in a bowl and lightly massage.
Thinly slice onion, and halve cherry tomatoes. Add to bowl.
In a smaller bowl, add dressing ingredients and whisk to combine.
Pour dressing over salad, toss well to coat, and let marinate for about 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, dice avocado.
Top with avocado and sunflower seeds before serving. Best eaten within a day.
I often just use a drizzle of red wine vinegar in place of the lemon juice and tamari – either works great!
Made gluten-free with tamari.
