kale salad

This salad is incredibly easy to make and is a delicious example of how great veggies can be without oil or dressing.  It's also a great way to feature kale in a dish. Though it is raw and unprocessed, keep in mind that the avocado and seeds add a significant amount of fat, so if you're trying to cut back on that you may want to reduce the amount suggested in this recipe. From an eco standpoint, this meal is wonderful because you can get everything without packaging!

Instructions

  1. Break up leaves from kale and put into a bowl (compost the stems or use them to make broth)
