Easy Kale Avocado Salad

Kale Avocado Salad is a quick toss together salad with avocado and lemon and red onion.

It’s as simple as mashing together a few simple ingredients to get this fresh summer salad on your table fast.


You must first thoroughly wash your hands and then dive right into the bowl. The key to making this salad is in the bruising of the kale leaves using a firm mashing of the avocado, lemon, red onion and salt into the kale.

Trust Me!!

I told Peter we were having a new Kale Salad with dinner and he sneered at me. You know, scrunched nose and all. I said trust me.

And……you know what? He loved the Kale Avocado Salad. Even had two helpings. HA!

No storing for later, sorry.

Unfortunately this salad does not store for leftovers. You can certainly make it an hour ahead of serving, but this Kale Avocado Salad must be eaten on the same day when made.

My secret to lasting weight loss

Maintaining my weight loss, and quite frankly staying healthy, has always been the main driver for this website. Making low carb side salads like this Kale Avocado Salad is really my trick.

Sorry, it’s that simple for me…I meal prep and almost always cook at home.

I wrote a few articles about this and will write more. Everyone needs to know that cooking at home is one of my major keys to success.

Every meal does not have to be epic.

When I am prepared I have a much better chance at success and maintaining my best health.
