Edamame and Kale in Avocado Salad Cups
**Confession: I got a wee bit ahead of myself and skipped week "D", so no date recipe for you! Hehe!**
Hello again! It's time to share my Meatless Monday A – Z recipe! :)
This week started Next week starts with the letter "e", so Heather had us create a meatless dish using edamame beans!
I love edamame beans, so I was right on board when I saw that this was the ingredient to be used! My favourite way to have edamame beans is in a salad, so that's exactly what I did!
I didn't make any ordinary salad, though! I made a delicious salad with kale and avocado and then served it in an avocado salad cup!
This was my first time ever serving a salad like this and I really enjoyed the presentation!
The salad was creamy from the avocado, but still had a nice bit of crunch from the edamame beans. The kale was massaged well enough that it wasn't too chewy, but it still had a nice texture when I served it.
Massaged Kale Salad with Avocado and Edamame
Makes 2 servings
1 cup kale, washed and ripped into small pieces
1/2 cup edamame beans, boiled and shelled
Beging by halving your avocado and removing the pit. In a bowl, combine your kale and avocado. Massge the kale with the avocado until the kale becomes soft. Add edamame beans. Toss salad.
Divide the salad into two portions and serve in the two halves of the avocado.
Grate carrot ontop of salad for colour and presentation.
This is an easy salad, but it was so good that I had it two days in a row :)
For an extra punch of protein (and a larger serving), I added more kale and topped my salad with tuna cakes.
Continue having a marvelous day, friends! Love you all!
