This is my new favorite salad! On Saturday, we went to the Farmers Market and got our usual week's supply of F&V. It was extremly hot out, and coming home to make this refreshing summer salad from our finds was just what we all needed! Sweet, salty, bitter, tangy, spicy all rolled into one bite! With a side of chilled coconut water, lunch was complete.....
1⁄2 cup fresh orange juice
3 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
2 tsp. soy sauce (I use Nama Shoyu)
1 clove garlic, smashed and chopped into a paste
4 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
2-3 avocados, halved, pitted, and peeled
2 tbsp. raw hemp seeds
1 bunch kale (about 3⁄4 lb.), chopped
1. Whisk together juices, soy sauce, and garlic in a bowl. Slowly whisk in oil; set dressing aside.
2. Massage kale in large bowl with olive oil and salt to soften it and break down the bitter taste.
3. Cut avocados into cubes, and add with the hemp seeds to the kale. Toss kale mixture with dressing and season with salt and pepper.
4. Add in any other veggies you like - I used cherry tomatoes and cucumbers.
