Avocado’s nuttiness is heightened by lemon juice, cayenne pepper and garlic powder, which are then massaged into the kale in this classic winter greens salad. The leaves of Tuscan kale are more tender than other varieties, so you can dig into this refreshing salad as soon as you start salivating for that quintessential kale crunch. This recipe comes to us from Lindsay of Running with Tongs.
