Serves: Makes about 6 servings
Ingredients
  • 6 cups kale, torn into bite sized pieces
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1 cup blueberries

  • ¼ cup crumbled feta cheese
FOR THE LEMON VINAIGRETTE
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tsp finely grated lemon zest
  • 3-4 tbsp maple syrup (depending on how sweet you like it)
  • Pinch of salt (or to taste)

Instructions
  1. To make the vinaigrette, whisk together the olive oil, apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, lemon zest, maple syrup, salt and pepper in a small bowl and set aside.
  2. To prepare the salad, place kale in a large bowl. Pour desired amount of dressing over the kale and massage into leaves for several minutes.
