Kale, Avocado and Grapefruit Salad
This is a crisp, light and flavorful salad. It works well as a side or as a main meal. I have added grilled shrimp to this and it is a great, light meal.
4 cups baby Kale
1 ripe avocado, halved and cubed
1 grapefruit, halved. Peel one half and cut into 1 inch chunks. Juice the other half.
2 tsp toasted sesame oil
1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
Place baby kale, sectioned avocado and grapefruit into a large bowl. In a small bowl, whisk 3-4 tbsp grapefruit juice with sesame oil and rice wine vinegar. Taste, and adjust accordingly: if too bland, add more grapefruit juice and/ or vinegar. If too bitter- add more sesame oil. Once flavors seem balanced, pour dressing over salad and toss to mix well. It helps break up tougher fibers in Kale to massage dressing into salad- gently. Let the salad sit for 20-30 minutes before serving as it is best once flavors absorbed into Kale. Enjoy! Add some shrimp or chicken from grill to make this salad a main meal! Bon appetite!
