This refreshing, healthy salad was presented in an uncooking class by the Present Moment Cafe in St. Augustine FL. I love the salad as is, but this version I have added my own inclusion of fresh tomatoes. This sounds strange to do, but believe it is simple and delicious when complete.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place all ingredients except tomatoes in a medium large mixing bowl.
  2. With your hands, gently mix and massage the avocado into the kale almost like kneading meatloaf.
  3. Continue until kale is a dark glistening green about 3 minutes.
  4. Lightly toss in tomatoes and serve.

Delightful! We loved it. This was my first time making a kale salad and it turned out so yummy. Thank you!

Very yummy and easy to make. Reminds me of tabouleh minus the burghul. Since my bunch of kale was large, I doubled the red onion and red pepper (1/4 c. each). I used 3 T.. olive oil and 3 T. of lemon juice with additional salt (to taste). One avocado was sufficient. I also increased the tomatoes; I chopped up grape tomatoes equivalent to 3 plum tomatoes. We sprinkled crisp munchies ( on top. This served 4.

Great idea to add the tomatoes - they give color and sweetness to this salad. Looking forward to trying this with other varieties of greens!
