This Japanese-inspired salad combines the slightly bitter and fresh taste of kale with creamy and buttery avocado. Sprinkle the salad with raw hemp seeds to add a nutty taste similar to that of pine nuts, and enjoy.


  • 1⁄2 cup fresh orange juice
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 avocados, halved, pitted, and peeled
  • 2 tablespoons raw hemp seeds
  • 1 bunch kale (about 3⁄4 pound), stemmed and finely chopped
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Smash the garlic, sprinkle with salt and mash into a paste. Place the garlic into a small bowl along with the orange juice, lemon juice and soy sauce and whisk to combine. Slowly pour in the olive oil while whisking vigorously to blend; set aside.
  2. Cut two of the avocados into cubes and then thinly slice the third. Place the cubed avocado into a shallow salad bowl along with the hemps seeds and the kale. Add a few healthy pinches of salt and pepper and then toss the salad with the dressing to coat. Garnish with the sliced avocado and serve immediately.
