Ingredients

For the Kale Avocado Salad

  • 2 Ripe, fresh avocados, peeled, pitted, and cubed
  • 1 Pound baby carrots
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon pepper
  • 15.5 Ounces canned chick peas, drained
  • 1 Pound kale, stalks removed, leaves coarsely chopped
  • 1/3 Cup walnuts, coarsely chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice

Directions

For the Kale Avocado Salad

Heat oven to 400°F.

In a bowl, toss carrots, oil, 1/4 teaspoon of the salt, and pepper.

Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet, and bake 20 minutes. Add chick peas and walnuts to pan, stir and return to oven.

Bake until carrots are brown and tender, an additional 5 to 10 minutes.

In a large bowl combine kale, lemon juice, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and half of the avocado.

Massage kale with both hands until the avocado is pureed and the kale softens and turns bright green, about 2 minutes.

Add half of the carrot mixture to the kale; toss.

Place in a large serving bowl. Top with remaining carrot mixture and avocado.
