For many it is the dressing that makes a good salad. Salad must also provide variety and balance. A good salad does not become simply a bowl of everything. In this salad, I have used baby kale, creamy avocados, and sweet tomatoes and ended it with sweet red onion. But it is the dressing that ties everything together. A good salad is fresh, light and refreshing. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • THE DRESSING (1-cup)
  • 1 Tbsp. finely chopped shallot
  • 1 Tbsp. (1-inch) peeled and grated fresh ginger root
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp. gluten free tamari sauce
  • 1 ½ Tbsp. rice vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp. gluten free ketchup
  • 1 Tbsp. water
  • THE SALAD
  • ½ lb. baby kale
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 avocados cut to 1-inch cubes
  • ½ lb. tomatoes (preferably cherry), quartered
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped parsley for garnish
  • Instructions

  • Whisk all the salad dressing ingredients together and set aside. This will keep for a few days when refrigerated
  • Toss the salad with the salad dressing and sprinkle with parsley
  • NOTE: You don't have to use all the salad dressing
