Marinated Kale Salad
A quick and easy marinated kale salad with avocado, tomato, and flavorful dressing. This is the recipe that makes us crave kale!
- 1 large bunch curly kale*
- 1/4 cup red onion, thinly sliced
- 5 oz. cherry/grape tomatoes
- 1/2 avocado
- 3 Tbsp. sunflower seeds
For the dressing:
- 3 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice (about 1 lemon)
- 1 1/2 Tbsp. tamari (more/less as desired)
Tear/chop kale into bite-size pieces (stems removed). Place in a large bowl and lightly massage to tenderize.
Thinly slice red onion. Add to kale.
Add lemon juice and tamari. Toss well to thoroughly coat. Set aside and let the kale and onion marinate for about 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, dice tomato and avocado.
Add tomato to salad and toss again. Top with avocado and sunflower seeds before serving. Best enjoyed within a day.
*Kale: I find 1 large bunch kale yields about 4-5 cups chopped. If you have a smaller bunch of kale, start with 2 Tbsp. lemon juice + 1 Tbsp. tamari and increase as desired. Lacinato kale works great as well.
