Recipe: Kale and Granny Smith Apple Salad
Serves 1-2

You’ll need:

1 bunch Tuscan kale, chopped
1 granny smith apple, sliced
1 avocado, peeled and cubed
Slivered or chopped almonds
Fresh ground pepper
Chia seeds, optional
1/4 cup coconut yogurt
1/2 lemon

To make the dressing, combine yogurt and lemon juice in a bowl and mix well with a fork.

This step is optional, but recommended: take your kale and a little of the dressing, and massage dressing into kale for a few minutes with hands. This helps break down the toughness of the kale, and makes it much easier to digest.

To assemble salad, toss together kale, apple, avocado and almonds.

Serve in bowls, topping with chia seeds, fresh ground pepper and as much dressing as you like.
