Creamy Kale Avocado Salad

This recipe is from the cookbook Enlightened Eating by Caroline Dupont. If you’re at a loss as to how to prepare kale (aside from kale chips), this is a delicious way to do it. Massaging kale until it wilts makes it more digestible, too.


  • 1 head kale (any variety), washed and dried well
  • 1½ Tbs fresh lemon juice
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 1 avocado, peeled and pitted
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced (optional)


  1. Slice off thick stems from the centre of each kale leaf, and then tear each leaf into bite-size pieces.
  2. In a large bowl, use hands to squeeze kale, salt and lemon juice together to wilt the kale.
  3. Add avocado; massage into kale until the mixture is creamy.
  4. Add tomato and green onion. Serve immediately. Serves 2 as a meal, 4-6 as a side dish.
