What to do…
- In a large bowl, combine kale and 1½ tsp (7.5 mL) olive oil. Gently massage until leaves are shiny and supple. This can also be done in a Kitchen Aid mixer, with the paddle attachment, on low speed. Chill, covered, until ready to serve.
- In a small bowl, whisk together remaining olive oil, mashed avocado, vinegar, honey, salt and pepper until combined.
- Just before serving, toss kale and remaining ingredients with vinaigrette.
The kale can be massaged with oil ahead of time and kept, undressed, in the fridge until ready to serve.
