AVOCADO PESTO KALE SALAD

We’re not making your sad old ‘iceberg lettuce with a few carrot shreds’ salad here. Salad is badass. There … we said it.

Get that image out of your head. That is not salad. That’s lettuce in a bowl and way too wicked boring. This is a flavor-packed stand-alone dish with a heavy dose of nutrients.

Instructions

  1. Stem all the kale and coarsely chop (don’t toss these stems, they are great in stir fries, soups and juice).
  2. Combine both kales, onion, bell peppers and cabbage in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Prepare the dressing by adding all dressing ingredients to a small mixing bowl, and whisk together until mixture is well combined and smooth.
  4. Pour dressing over salad and mix by hand, get in there good making sure to massage the kale as you go. Even kale likes massages.
  5. Serve the salad with the reserved bell pepper slices and pistachios as a garnish topper.
