Day 960 : Fast, Easy, Fresh Meals

I recognize that its been a while since we've done some cooking together my Fromagical friends! So how about my favorite raw kale salad?

What is in this fantastic salad?

1 bunch of raw kale
1 avocado
Handful of Roasted Almonds
Grated Parmesan
Dash of lemon
2 diced kumato tomatoes
1/4 of a fennel bulb diced
Fresh Thyme
Sea salt
Black Pepper
Crushed Red Pepper

Yes I know you are thinking, gosh that is a lot of ingredients for a raw kale salad but trust me it works all together. First off, for the kale, tear into small pieces, drizzle with olive oil, lemon, Parmesan, sea salt and mashed avocado. Then with your hands, blend and massage the kale until each leaf of kale is equally coated with olive oil, lemon, Parmesan, and avocado. Top with roasted almonds, black pepper, and crushed red pepper. Let the kale soak everything up for ten to fifteen minutes -- it will give each morsel more of a depth of flavor.

Meanwhile dice up your tomatoes, fennel, and mozzarella in a separate bowl, drizzle some olive oil and fresh thyme over the mixture, and then combine. Add sea salt and pepper.

Combine both bowls and serve with a nice Cotes du Rhone.
Simple, flavorful, light and delightful -- it will brighten your dreary Wednesday!
