Kale, Avocado & Pomegranate Salad

This is a great way to eat Kale, rather than the usual steamed with sunday roast.  l love it, and it is easy.  Here I have used Calvado Nero a dark kale.  Ripe avocado is a must so it is nice and soft.  The Pomegranate seeds add additional colour and texture so although they are not essential, add a good element to the dish. Please enjoy.

Ingredients

300 g Kale

For the dressing

2 tbsp. Tahini
2 tbsp. natural yogurt
2 tbsp. soy sauce
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 clove garlic finely chopped
1 small green chilli deseeded and finely chopped
juice and zest of 2 limes
bunch of basil leaves torn into small pieces

For the topping
2 avocados chopped into bite size pieces
2 tbsp. lemon juice
seeds of 1 pomegranate
good handful of mixed nuts such as pine nuts pumpkin seeds

This is so easy..

put all the dressing ingredients into a bowl and mix together,

take the kale, remove the stems and veins and cut into bit size pieces,

add the kale to the dressing ingredients and leave to marinade for 4/5 mins,

turn into a serving bowl, add the topping ingredients, and mix gently with your hands.

Serve with roast chicken and fresh bread…. and a glass of white wine!… enjoy
