Massaged Kale Salad with Fresh Blueberries

The avocado in the dressing makes this, as does massaging the dressing into the kale for a few minutes to soften the leaves. I got this idea from Judy Stern in May 2014. I had tried to make kale salads but they never tasted as good as ones I had at restaurants. Judi said massaging in the dressing, including an avocado, was key. She was right!

Curly kale leaves 
Toasted pine nuts or almonds
Fresh blueberries
(optional) red peppers for color
(optional) cooked wheat berries or farro

2-3 T olive oil
1 lemon
1 T white balsamic vinegar
Salt & pepper
(optional) a little mustard
1 avocado (the key!)

Wash the curly kale leaves, and rip them off the stems in small pieces. Discard the stems.
Mix up oil, lemon, vinegar, spices. Cut up avocado. Add dressing and avocado and massage into leaves for a few minutes to soften kale. Add toppings!
