Fruity Kale Salad with Coconut Lime Dressing

If Hawaii had a flavor, this salad is what it would tasty like! This is by far one of my favorite salads and I make it weekly (in the summer) and enjoy it for lunch while sitting on my deck. If you like coconut and fresh fruit, this is the salad for you.

Servings: 4

Ingredients:

  • 6 large leaves of fresh kale, rinsed and dried
  • 1 banana, chopped
  • 3 strawberries, sliced
  • 4 cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
  • 1 half of an avocado, cubed
  • 1 clementine, or half of an orange peeled and divided
  • 1 apple, chopped
  • 1 tbsp cilantro (chopped fresh is best, but I used dried)

Dressing

  • 1/4 cup dried coconut
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp agave
  • 1 tsp flaxseed

To prep Kale:

  • dash or two of salt

Directions:

First, chop up kale into bite sized pieces.

Next, mix up the ingredients for the dressing in a separate small bowl until well blended.

Then, salt the kale leaves lightly and toss.

Massage the dressing (using your very clean hands) into the leaves until the kale becomes wilty and well coated with the dressing.

Now, in a separate bowl, take all of the chopped fruit (except for the avocado) and toss with cilantro.

Mix fruit with the wilted kale.

Top with the chopped avocado and a little more of the dried coconut.

Voila… fruity kale salad!
