Strawberry Avocado Kale Salad

This is a very basic, quick and delicious strawberry avocado kale salad.  The avocado will give you a nice creamy texture on top of the kale.  You can substitute any type of nut you have on hand like walnuts, pecans or pistachios.  If you don’t have any vanilla balsamic glaze just place a vanilla bean pod into your balsamic vinegar/glaze and let it sit for a few hours before using.



1 bunch of kale, stemmed and finely sliced

½ pint of strawberries, sliced

1 large ripe avocado

1 small lemon, juiced

½ cup toasted slivered almonds

¼ cup vanilla balsamic vinegar/ glaze

Salt & Pepper to taste


Place the kale in a large serving bowl.   Slice the avocado in half then remove the pit and squeeze on top of the kale.   Pour lemon juice on top of the kale and avocado.   Using clean hands, massage the avocado into the kale.   Stir in the strawberries and slivered almonds.  Season with salt & pepper and then drizzle vanilla balsamic glaze over salad.
