Kale and Avocado Salad
Here's a yummy salad that's quick and easy to prepare and another way to use raw kale other than in a green smoothie.

I was listening to a recent podcast with Karen Knowler. She reminded listeners that she has over 300 'how to' videos on YouTube. So this morning I took a look. One of the first ones I ran across was this simple salad - and with two fresh bunches of curly kale in stock - I decided to give it a try for lunch. Karen is thorough in her how to description and in 6 minutes I felt I could duplicate it with no trouble. You can, too!

The image above is what I didn't eat - the bowl was full and I managed to put away two hefty portions. No shy eater, here. But with calorie light fare such as this, one can indulge.

red onion
Kalamata olives
Himalayan Salt or Sea Salt
Lemon juice

Amounts will vary depending on how many you plan to serve. I used about 5 stems of curly kale, one ripe tomato, a slice of red onion, diced, half an avocado and 4 quartered olives. That made two generous servings.

Watch Karen's video for step by step instruction. This is a salad I'll be making often.
