photo-24Let’s admit it, kale is a trendy vegetable.

Trendy for it’s nutritional components, it’s funky looks, ever-changing taste and versatility…kale is pretty cool indeed.

Cool enough that a friend of ours started The Kale Project, re-introducing the leafy green to the city of lights. She kindly featured our famous sesame kale salad on her blog, and we hope her readers enjoyed it as much as our students do at lunch!

Here is another kale salad recipe that will leave your tastebuds satisfied, and ever amazed at how versatile this veggie really is.

Here’s how:

Serves 6

Ingredients:

  • 1 head, curly kale, leaves removed from stems
  • 1 avocado
  • 3 tbsp fresh lemon
  • 3 tbsp sesame seeds

Directions:

1. Prep ingredients: Remove kale leaves from stems, rinse under water. Place in salad spinner, spin until dry. Line leaves on top of each other, then cut into thin strips. Cut avocado in half, remove the pit, peel away the skin, then chop up the flesh. Juice your lemon.

2. Finishing touches: In a large bowl add kale and avocado. Get your hands messy by mixing in the avocado into the kale, massaging until the kale leaves are fully saturated. Pour in the lemon juice, mix again. Finish with sesame seeds, then serve!
