Strawberry, Avocado, and Kale Salad with Strawberry-Apple Cider Vinaigrette

I love kale and when it’s topped with big juicy strawberries and creamy avocado, even better.

I feel healthier just by looking at it.

Fruit in salads can sometimes be tricky to pull off sometimes, but here the sweet strawberries are a perfect contrast to the more bitter kale.

Even if you’re not a huge kale fan, there are so many wonderful textures and flavors in every bite you can’t help but like it. It’s filling, satisfying, and healthy.



Strawberry, Avocado, and Kale Salad with Strawberry-Apple Cider Vinaigrette

INGREDIENTS:
Salad

  • about 6 cups freshly torn kale leaves, with coarse stems and ribs removed
  • 1 medium/large ripe Hass avocado, peeled, pitted and sliced thinly
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries, halved


Strawberry-Apple Cider Vinaigrette

  • 2 cups strawberries, whole with tops off (frozen okay and it’s what I used)
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons honey, or to taste (agave may be substituted to keep vegan)
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 3/4 teaspoon black pepper, or to taste
  • 1 clove garlic and/or 2 tablespoons diced red onion, optionally add to create a more savory dressing (I didn’t use either)


DIRECTIONS:

  • Salad – To a large bowl or platter, add all ingredients in the order listed; set aside.
  • Strawberry-Apple Cider Vinaigrette – To the canister of a high-speed blender or food processor, add all ingredients in the order listed. Blend on high power until texture is as smooth as desired. Taste vinaigrette and tweak as necessary to taste. Drizzle over salad, toss to combine, and serve immediately. If you don’t use all the vinaigrette, extra will keep airtight in the fridge for up to 1 week.
