Prep Time 10 minutes


  • 2 cups kale finely shredded (stalks removed)
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 lemon juiced
  • 1 cup quinoa cooked & cooled
  • 1/2 avocado diced

  • 1/4 cup dry roasted almonds chopped

  • In a large mixing bowl massage kale with a generous amount of olive oil and lemon juice really well for several minutes and allow to stand for a further 5 minutes (this helps to tenderise the kale).
