Kale and Avocado Salad

Kale tends to be rather tough and stringy when raw. One of the most common raw recipes you’ll see is the raw kale and avocado salad. In this Japanese inspired salad, the mixture of salt and citrus juices essentially “cooks” the leaves and breaks them down enough to make it a delicious salad.
