When strawberries are in season, I enjoy making this refreshing and healthy oil-free Strawberry Avocado Kale Salad with coconut and hemp seeds. It’s hearty, yet refreshing. And Strawberry Avocado Kale Salad is naturally vegan and gluten-free.
When I start seeing that organic strawberries are available in my CSA box or at the local market, I start buying them every time I shop. Are you the same way?
And I also like them in salads.
Before we get started on how to make this Strawberry Avocado Kale Salad, I want to share some affiliate links with you so that you can easily find the ingredients for this recipe. Don’t worry, they are all things that you can use in other recipes, especially if you bake or enjoy smoothies.
Since I wanted to keep this recipe raw, I like to use Organic Raw Blue Agave. It’s a low glycemic sweetener, and it helps take away any bitterness from the kale. Another option is to substitute the agave with pure maple syrup.
Raw hemp seeds are tasty and a great source of Omega 3 and 6 Essential Fatty Acids. They are great as a topping on salads or smoothie bowls or blended in smoothies.
Unsweetened Shredded Coconut can be used in countless ways, including as topping for oatmeal, in salads, and in smoothies.
And now, I present to you the recipe for Strawberry Avocado Kale Salad!
Strawberry Avocado Kale Salad
- Remove the tough ribs from the kale and tear or chop into bite-size pieces.
- In a large bowl, use your hands to massage the kale with half the avocado until the kale is tender and has reduced in size.
- Add the lime juice and agave and toss well to coat.
- Add the cubed avocado, strawberries, hemp seeds, and shredded coconut and toss again.
