Creamy strawberry balsamic dressing goes perfectly with this crunchy kale salad loaded with lots of textures and tastes. Hard to believe it's sugar free!
Cut or tear your kale off of the stems and chop into bit sized pieces. The stem can be discarded or saved with other vegetable scraps for homemade stock.
In a large bowl add the kale, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, lemon juice, and salt. Using your hands gently massage the kale for about a minute. This will help to soften the leaves. Set aside.
Prepare the strawberries, red onion, and avocado. Add the red onion, avocado, and 2 cups of the diced strawberries to the kale.
In a blender or food processor add all of the ingredients for the dressing. Blend until smooth and no chunks remain, about 1 minute. Add more oil if a thinner consistency is desired at this point.
Toss the salad, dress, and serve immediately.
Pecans can be substituted with any other nuts or left off entirely if desired!
