Unbelievably Delicious! Kale Slaw

I love Kale…. my friends know this. I often make salads with Kale, sauté it, or throw it in my smoothie.

I even grew it on my balcony this summer!

However, this salad recipe here is my new favourite 🙂

The combination of all the flavours work so incredibly well together. 

I seriously think I could eat this every day!

Super easy to throw together, keep well in the fridge for a couple days (I suggest cutting fresh avocado each day, as it will brown after 1 day).
