Salad of the Week – Kale with Oranges, Almonds and Avocado

24 Jan

I’m calling this salad of the week because we’ve had it 3 times this week. So so good. I copied it almost directly (though used cashews one night in lieu of almonds) from a great blog that I used for inspiration regularly.

Kale with Oranges, Almonds and Avocado

from Eat, Live, Run


1 bunch kale (I used curly but there’s also lacinto kale) washed and roughly chopped

2 oranges

3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1/2 very ripe avocado, diced

2 tbsp sliced almonds (or cashew were great too)

Salt and pepper

Make dressing by combining juice of 1 orange, olive oil, and a pinch each of salt and pepper. I use a jar which makes mixing easy – just shake! Then keep leftovers for another day. Take the other orange, peel and section, cutting off the white bit and slicing into small pieces for the salad. Toss the kale, avocado, orange, almonds and dressing and add salt and pepper as needed. If you have the time, make the salad an hour or so before you plan to eat it, letting the dressing soften up the kale a bit. I served it with chicken soup one night, with sliced chicken for lunch the next, and with meatloaf this evening.
