For the dressing:
  • 1.5 Tbsp. ginger, peeled, minced.
  • juice of 1 small lemon (about 2 Tbsp.)
  • 2 Tbsp. high quality natural honey
  • ½ tsp. flaked salt
For the salad:
  • 1 bunch kale (about 6 oz.) washed, de-ribbed, chopped
  • ½ bunch radishes (about 4 oz.), washed, trimmed, cut into thin half-moons.
  • 1 extra large apple (about 10 oz. whole) quartered, cored, chopped
  • 1 avocado (about 8 oz. whole), peeled and pitted, cut into small thin slices.
  • 3 Tbsp. sunflower seeds
To make the dressing.
  1. Peel and mince ginger.

  4. Whisk together honey and lemon, add minced ginger (the salt will be added to the greens later.)
To make the salad.
  1. Wash kale, rip each leaf from its central rib, spin dry, chop.
  2. Wash radishes, trim away top and bottom, halve, cut into thin half-moons.
  3. Halve, core, peel and slice the avocado.
  4. Quarter, core, and chop the apple. Immediately toss the apples with a little of the dressing to keep them from browning.

  6. Arrange greens on plates.
  7. Top with the avocado, apple, radish, and sunflower seeds.
