Wilted Kale Salad with a Creamy Chipotle Dressing

  9 rater(s)

This salad is probably one of the healthiest doses of folate that you’ll ever get! Between the avocado and kale alone, you are going to be absorbing heart-healthy fats, magnesium, potassium, protein, iron, and lots of fiber. Eat up!

  • Prep Time: 5m
  • Total Time: 5m

Ingredients

For the Wilted Kale

  • 3/4 c kale
  • 1/2 tsp. fine Himalayan salt
  • 1 c baby tomatoes, sliced
  • 1/2 c hulled hemp seeds (hemp hearts)

For the Dressing

  • 2 avocados, peeled and pitted
  • 1 chipotle pepper, from a can
  • 1/4 c olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice

Instructions

  1. Remove the thick kale stems, wash the kale leaves, and then cut the leaves into thin strips. Place the sliced kale into a salad bowl, salt the kale, and massage it until it has a wilted-like texture.
  2. Add the tomatoes and hemp seeds to the bowl and toss to combine.
  3. Blend all of the dressing ingredients in a high-speed blender until creamy. Pour over the kale salad and mix to ensure all of the ingredients are coated. Enjoy!

Notes:

*If not using chipotle peppers, substitute with 1/2 teaspoon each of onion powder, cumin, chili powder, garlic powder and tamari (or nama shoyu).
