Kale is one of the hottest "superfoods" right now as it's loaded with nutrients (it has an "ANDI"  score of 1000) and is absolutely delicious. With summer coming, this Kale & Avocado recipe from Whole Foods Market is the perfect answer for a light and delicious meal that you can prepare in just a few minutes. Most of the ingredients can be found in the produce section, just like this one to the right:

Approximately 4 servings

2 lbs chopped kale (make sure thick stem is removed and discarded)
½ lb red onion, diced
½ lb red bell pepper, diced
3 avocado
3 oz lemon juice
2 tsp salt
½ tsp black pepper

Mash the avocado pulp with the lemon juice, salt and pepper until well-combined and smooth.  Alternatively, you can process together in a food processor.
Combine the avocado lemon mixture with the vegetables. It is actually easiest to use your hands to ensure that the kale is well-coated with the avocado dressing.
Taste and adjust seasonings. If you prefer a creamier texture, use more avocado.
