Kale Salad: Healthy & Delicious

My friend Marly made this kale salad that is SO good. Not only that, it's super healthy for you. Extra points for being vegan too!

Marly's Kale Salad
Adapted from the cookbook Clean Start by Terry Walters

1-2 bunches kale, finely chopped (Lacinato or a mix)
2-3 T olive oil
1/8 t sea salt
1 t grated fresh ginger
1 avocado, chopped
3 T finely chopped red onion
3 T finely chopped red bell pepper
1 carrot, grated
3 T toasted sunflower seeds
1 T lemon juice
1 T lime juice
1 t Dijon mustard
1/2 T maple syrup

Mix all wet ingredients in a jar to make dressing. Combine all other ingredients in a large salad bowl and toss with the dressing. Season to taste with salt. Massage dressing into salad with hands tossing lightly.

Serves 4
