Want to make a yummy, healthy salad in a flash? This recipe for Baby Kale Avocado Salad with Parmesan takes only minutes to prepare!
Crazy for Kale?
The popularity of kale really blew up. Who would have ever thought it’d be a staple ingredient for healthy smoothies.
And when I roast it in the oven, it turns into a pleasing, crunchy, satisfying treat that I don’t have to feel guilty about.
My favorite spot for this leafy green is in soups and salads.
I think it’s great that this healthy veggie has been featured in so many creative recipes. But I think raw kale, in its most stripped-down element, is sublime just the way it is.
Especially when you’re making a Baby Kale Avocado Salad with Parmesan cheese. So let’s dig in and see how easy this recipe is.
How to Make Baby Kale Avocado Salad with Parmesan
It couldn’t be easier to make this tasty low-carb salad recipe. All you do is toss together baby kale, sliced almonds, avocado, bacon, and Parmesan cheese in a big bowl (photos 1-6).
Then I like to top is off with my olive oil and balsamic vinegar salad dressing (photo 7). Of course, you can use any vinaigrette that you like or choose another favorite low-carb salad dressing.
I also like to dress up the top with some additional grated Parmesan cheese and bacon (photo 8).
This salad is so easy to make. And because it contains a lot of good fats, you really can eat it as if it were an entree.
I think one of the best ways to slim down is to eat a dense salad for lunch and dinner at least a few days a week.
But if nothing else, this recipe is perfect for those times when you’re making something quick for your family. Or for when you’re hosting another couple.
Enjoy this super simple salad!
