      This Kale Salad with Guacamole Dressing is a great satisfying lunch idea, as it contains leafy greens- Kale, Potatoes and Kidney beans. Pretty basic ingredients, which all together make a nice delicious salad under flavourful guacamole dressing.

      Kale

      In my opinion, kale is that sort of greens, that everybody needs to eat at some point in the day or a week. It is incredibly high in vitamins food, which nourishes our body.  Read the nutrition label of Kale here. To approach kale is very easy. It might seem too hard at first and very voluminous. However, to make the kale really soft and tender for the salad, try to massage it with half of the guacamole sauce right with your clean bare hands. Ther longer your massage it, the more tender and smaller in size it becomes. I prefer very soft kale, so I really massage it well for at least 5 minutes straight! It also helps to digest kale easier.

      If you don’t want or don’t have time to massage kale, another way to make it soft is to blanch it with hot water. Take a sip and place all the kale in it, then pour the hot boiling water over it and the kale will immediately shrink significantly.  However, I don’t always use that method because some of the nutrients can’t survive in the hot boiling water.

      Potatoes

      I love potatoes! Potatoes make this kale salad with guacamole dressing satisfying and add that starchy texture to it. Baked potatoes are generally healthier than boiled ones, more nutrients are preserved and tastier too! Add your favorite spices to the potatoes and some good quality oil to get the crispiness on the outside.

      Guacamole Salad Dressing

      If you like guacamole, you will like this dressing too! The ingredients are very basic: avocado, garlic, tomato, lemon juice chili, salt, and pepper. Some people prefer bell peppers and onions/ shallots in their guacamole. I love garlic and just prefer it that way, but it’s up to you. To make the dressing creamy and also runny enough for the salad, just add some water.
