This bright and zesty green kale salad is the ultimate summer dish filled with organic kale, apples, cucumber, green onion, avocado with a lime garlic dressing. This salad is great served with a grilled fish, chicken or any protein of your choice. The acidity of the lime will soften the raw kale if you let it sit for at least 30 minutes before serving. I added apple to give it some sweetness and the avocado adds a layer of richness to the salad. Try this recipe, you will like it!
