Recipe: Massaged Kale Salad

One of my friends from grad school made incredible massaged kale salads, and I’ve gotten back in the swing of eating them this summer. This is a very simple versatile recipe, that you can enhance with all your favorite fresh vegetables and farmers’ market goodies. Enjoy!


  • 1/2-1 ripe avocado
  • 1 fried egg (optional)
  • bowlful of kale
  • 1-2 carrots, chopped finely
  • 1-2 radishes, chopped finally
  • approximately 1 teaspoon of sesame oil
  • approximately 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar
  • salt and pepper


Take off all your rings or jewelry. Wash your hands extremely well and massage the ripe avocado into the bowlful of kale leaves. Massage until the leaves are soft, and the avocado is evenly distributed. Add the sesame oil and apple cider vinegar, and massage to mix.

To finish, add the chopped carrots and radish into the salad.

Fry an egg, and place on top of the kale salad,
