Have five minutes, kale and avocado? Then you have the makings of the simplest salad and healthy snack!

What you’ll need:

Kale

Avocado

Half Lemon

Honey

Black Pepper

{Preparation}

Wash and drain kale.
Cut half avocado into slices or cubes.
Mix kale and avocado.
Drizzle dressing made of lemon juice (from half lemon) and honey.
Sprinkle fresh ground black pepper.

There are many variations you can try depending on your palate or meal pairings. Another summer version I like is to cut fruits like green apples, grapes or strawberries and make a citrus dressing from olive oil and oranges or grapefruit.

For a savory twist, add crushed red pepper flakes your favorite cheese and use balsamic vinaigrette instead of honey. All you have to do is try different combinations.

For the version I’m enjoying tonight, I invested no more than five minutes to prepare and mix the ingredients and have spent approximately $1.50 – $2.00 for a medium size salad!

What are your favorite easy salad recipes?

  1. I’m not even kidding, I had a kale and avocado salad (with sunflower seeds and dried cranberries) for lunch today! I do like that crushed red pepper idea – maybe I’ll try that next!
