Smashed Kale Salad Recipe
Why I Love This Recipe
This recipe comes from Life Lab. Kids love tearing up kale and smashing it in a Ziploc bag with lemon and avocado! There is something oddly therapeutic about it. This recipe makes a great salad for the family.
Ingredients You'll Need
2 bunches of kale such as dino, red Russian etc.
2 large avocadoes
4 tbsp. of lime or lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste
Optional: Various garden herbs
1. Wash the bunch of kale, and then rip up all the leaves into bite-size pieces into a bowl (or giant Ziploc).
2. Close the bag and massage the bag of kale while the rest of the recipe is created. This helps to enhance kale flavor and palatability. Massage till kale turns a bright green.
3. Roughly chop up the avocado and sprinkle pieces over the kale. Mash the avocado onto the kale using your hands (or in the bag and continue to massage the kale until the avocado is evenly dispersed.
4. Measure out the lime juice, pour on the kale, and sprinkle the salt onto the kale. Rip up bits of garden herbs if you'd like.
