Chopped Kale Salad

Chopped Kale Salad

This is a recipe I made with some left over goodies from my Farm Fresh Box a few months ago. It turned out great and was super refreshing. I think it can be adjusted a bit if you are looking for more of a fall salad too. 

4 cups of chopped Kale
1 green pepper
3 celery stalks
1 cup baby carrots
3-4 sweet gypsy peppers 
1/2 green onion 
1 lemon
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tbs red wine vinegar
1/2 avocado
1tbs honey
 Sliced Almonds

A food processor will be your best friend with this recipe. I did everything with the food processor for this one. I was feeling kinda lazy and didn't want to put in any effort. Obviously chopping was out of the question. I suppose if you really wanted to you could chop everything up into tiny pieces and that would work just fine. I'm giving you the lazy instructions.

Put your kale in the food processor a little bit at a time so you can chop it up without it getting too fine. About a cup at a time will work. When it is all done, take it out and set it aside in a large bowl.

Throw your carrots, celery and green pepper into the food processor and chop for a few seconds. Again, make sure the pieces are not too small.

Add the carrot mixture to the kale and take out any big pieces or leave them in there for special crunch later on. 

Chop your gypsy peppers by themselves so they do not get too small, then add to your mixing bowl.

Same thing with your green onion, chop a bit then add to the mix. At this point your salad just needs to be tossed up and it is time to make the dressing.

I used red wine vinegar, but if you are thinking of making a fall salad, go ahead and mix it up with apple cider vinegar and an orange instead of a lemon. Get creative. You can also just use this dressing, its delicious.

Go ahead and dump all the ingredients into your food processor and let it rip.

You will want the dressing to be a little bit creamy. Just make sure all the avocado has broken down and you are all set. Pour on your dressing and mix throughout. You can top the salad with sliced almonds and whatever fruit you feel like. I had left over figs from my tree, but a sliced apple would have worked just as well.
