This beautiful salad will make an elegant and nutrient-dense addition to any table. Kale is massaged with avocado and lemon juice to tenderize it, then tossed with thinly sliced red cabbage, chopped apples and dried cherries.

Print Add Add To My Grocery List

Ingredients:

1 bunch kale, tough stems and center ribs removed
1 avocado, peeled and chopped
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon white balsamic vinegar
1 cup thinly sliced red cabbage
1 large apple, cored and chopped
2 tablespoons chopped unsweetened, unsulfured dried cherries, blueberries or currants (see note)
1/2 medium red onion, minced
2 tablespoons chives, chopped

Instructions:

Roll up each kale leaf and slice thinly. Add to bowl along with avocado, lemon juice and vinegar. Using your hands, massage the avocado, lemon juice and vinegar into the kale leaves until the kale starts to soften and wilt and each leaf is coated, about 2 to 3 minutes.

Mix in red cabbage, apple, dried cherries, onion and chives.

Note: If you have problems finding unsweetened, unsulfured cherries or blueberries, they can be ordered on-line from a number of sources.

Sounds delightful - are you literally breaking up/mashing the avocado in the process or should/does some remain? Thx!

I was looking for the recipe for Brussels Sprout Leaves with Shallots and Dried Currants, and this is the recipe that popped up (several times). Any advice?

Delicious crunchy munchy goodness! My husband who was hesitant about eating kale, enjoyed a second helping. My 21 year old son devoured his serving and gave it a 4 star rating. I give it a 5 star after I added more lemon juice and balsamic to taste. The ripe avocado disappears as it is massaged into the kale. This softens the kale and disappears as if the salad was made with an oil type dressing. Very nice salad.

In regards to the final statement found in this recipe:
"Note: If you have problems finding unsweetened, unsulfured cherries or blueberries, they can be ordered on-line from a number of sources."

Could you please include some of the sources / websites you've found these?

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Especially if these sources are available in Australia!

I thought there's no way we can eat all of this salad in one sitting, but we almost did!  It was delicious, and I had a small portion left over for lunch the next day.  The leftovers kept just fine.

I was very surprised how much I liked this salad.  I have an aversion to kale.  In this, it tasted fine!  It had a burst of flavor and crunchy goodness.  Rating:  4 out of 5.

This salad tastes as great as it looks. Made it with craisins instead of dried cherries.The taste is so good and really satisfying. We will be having this again as the different textures were wonderful. We also used baby kale instead of the older stuff. Think it would be great with a few toasted pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds also. Just wanted to add that my site is not letting me rate this but it is definately a 5 star recipe!
