This salad is as delicious as it is healthy.
I recently found myself with an overabundance of ripe avocados, and I got some excellent suggestions about how to use them up from my Facebook followers. One person recommended this kale salad, which I adapted according to what I had on hand. The result is fantastic.
I love when an uber healthy dish like this is also addictively delicious. The sweet crunch of the pears and the spicy flavor of the radishes complement the greens and the creamy avocado. A little salt and oil are almost the only dressing this needs, but I add a bit of lemon juice to round out the flavors. Feel free to substitute different fruit for the pears or other vegetables that you have on hand.
