I’m madly in love with this new salad. It’s been a while since a salad has really blow me away and I must say, I’ve eaten this salad on repeat for the past week. Paul is equally impressed, but not as obsessed, and not really into eating it twice a day, everyday. However, I promise you the unexpected hint of citrus juiciness from the clementines, mixed with the creaminess of the avocado will do wonders for your taste-buds.
Also, I learned something new about kale that has transformed ALL my kale salads. Ready for it? Massage your kale! Yup, you read that right. Kale is big and crunchy, and often a little messy to eat since your mouth tends to get so full. So here’s what you do: after your kale is washed, torn, and ready to go, pour a glug of GOOD olive oil over it, sprinkle with salt and pepper and get those hands ready to massage. Scrunch up the kale between your fingers and give it a good squeeze. Obviously don’t overdo it and make sure your hands are clean!
