An uncommonly good raw kale salad. Cringe-inducing in its intention, but crave-inducing in its execution.
If you’re on a detox kick or simply just want a good, honest salad for lunch that won’t wilt within the hour, consider this option.
Raw Kale, Carrot and Avocado Salad with a Lemon Juice Dressing
1 bunch green kale, thick stems removed and leaves finely chopped
2 cups grated carrots
half of an avocado, peeled, pitted and cut into chunks
half of a medium sized red onion, thinly sliced
juice of 1 large lemon, about 2 tablespoons
3/4 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce OR Dr. Bragg’s infamous Liquid Amino Acids
2 tablespoons sesame seeds, toasted
1.) Toss all of the ingredients together in a large bowl save for the sesame seeds. Use the back of a large serving spoon to really work the avocado into the vegetables to create a creamy dressing of sorts.
2.) Set aside for at least 30 minutes to allow for the avocado and lemon juice to soften up the kale. Serve garnished with a sprinkling of sesame seeds.
