Marinated Kale Salad
A quick & easy marinated kale salad with avocado, tomato, and flavorful dressing!
- 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 & 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.
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.
