This is the easiest and best lunch ever!  Before switching to a whole foods, plant-based diet I used to think kale was a very bitter, gross-tasting vegetable.  In fact my family used it as food for our pet rabbit!  We would buy one of those big bags of chopped green kale and that would be rabbit food for the week.  Now we buy THREE big bags and eat kale in smoothies, soups, stir-frys, and in this easy to make salad.  It is surprisingly hearty and will last you until your afternoon snack for sure!

Ingredients:

A whole bunch of kale, thick stems removed and leaves torn or chopped to salad size

1/2 Avocado

Juice from 1 lemon

Zest from 1 lemon (if desired)

Put all ingredients in a big bowl.  Using clean hands, “drive” the avocado into the kale by smushing and crunching the mixture together until well combined.
