Ranking at the very top of the nutrient density charts, there’s a reason eating kale feels so good. Here all-star kale is combined with mineral-rich nori and skin-healthy fats from avocado.

Hearty Kale Salad 


• 1 large bunch green kale, washed, dried, stems removed
• 1-1/2 medium avocados, peeled and pitted, divided
• 1-1/2 tablespoons miso paste
• 3 scallions, thinly sliced, white and light green parts only
• 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
• 3 sheets nori, cut into thin strips


1. Tear kale by hand into bite-size pieces and place in a large bowl. Set aside.

2. In a small bowl, mash 1 avocado with miso paste, scallions and vinegar into a chunky guacamole-like mixture. Add to bowl with kale.

3. Using clean hands, massage avocado mixture into kale, squeezing and tossing leaves, about 2 minutes.

4. Chop remaining half of avocado into chunks and scatter over the salad. Sprinkle nori in bowl and toss thoroughly.
