Kale and Pear Salad


Prep Notes

Kale and pears are both good liver foods, and great prebiotics for the gut as are the onions and parsley. The avocado and cashews add some good quality fats and the yogurt provides both prebiotic and probiotics.

Salad

Trim the kale and tear into pieces suitable for a salad. Add the celery, pears, red onion, and parsley. Mix well.


Avocado Dressing

Add all ingredients to blender and blend the ingredients 1 minute. Add the avocado dressing to the salad and mix. Allow the salad to sit for an hour before eating to soften the kale.

Chopped cashews can be added to make it more substantial.
