Enjoy this salad as part of a detox (if so remove the soy, replace it with Himalayan pink salt) or use it to curb cravings.

A few of the benefits of kale, which may help you understand the craze for kale that is spreading throughout the world at the moment:

  • Kale helps alkaline your body – which means it helps you reduce acidity and to detoxify your body
  • Kale contains high levels of iron, calcium, magnesium and copper
  • Kale contains vitamins K, A, E, B2, B3, B6 and C
  • Kale is a source of protein (130 grams = ca 5% of your RDI)
  • Kale is high in fibre

Ensure you are enjoying organic kale since kale is one of “the dirty dozen”, which means if it’s not grown organically contains pesticides you do not want anywhere near your body. To learn more about the dirty dozens and clean fifteen, go to EWG’s website to learn more about making an informed choice about your food.

Ingredients for the simple and creamy kale salad

  • a bunch of kale (I usually use 4-5 large kale leaves)
  • 1 pc avocado
  • 1 tsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1 small garlic clove, crushed
  • smokey Chipotle powder
  • a splash of soya


  1. Wash and dry the kale
  2. Remove the stems from the kale and chop the leaves into smaller pieces
  3. Add the kale to a large bowl and massage it with clean hands for a minute or two
  4. Peel and cut the avocado in half, and add it to the bowl
  5. Crush the garlic into the bowl and add lemon juice
  6. Massage the kale with the avocado, lemon juice and garlic for 2-3 minutes with clean hands
  7. Add the soya and the Chipotle powder, stir and distribute it evenly over the kale salad
  8. Serve immediately

Do it, especially if you are a fan of hot spices. My staple kale salad was in need of a revamp, so I tried smoked Chipotley powder instead of cayenne, so nice. :)
