Posted: Updated:
KALE SALAD
Claire Thomas

This salad is all about balance. Tender kale with creamy feta and avocados and a touch of crunchy breadcrumbs, all with a bright and spicy herbaceous vinaigrette. It's quick to whip up, and absolutely delicious. Enjoy!

INGREDIENTS

For 2 to 4 (whether it's a side salad or main course)
1 bunch kale, ribs removed and chopped into 1/2 inch wide strips
1 block feta, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
2 ripe avocados, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
1/4 cup bread crumbs, toasted

INGREDIENTS (DRESSING)

1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried hot red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon paprika
1/4 cup parsley leaves
3 tablespoons fresh cilantro leaves
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon harissa paste

DIRECTIONS

Blend the dressing ingredients together in a food processor or blender. Pour over the kale, in a bowl, and massage the kale with your fingers for 5 minutes or until the kale has wilted slightly and is tender. Add the feta, avocado, and bread crumbs, and very lightly toss. Enjoy!
