Kale & Avocado Salad 

Swich Kale and Avocado Salad

Kale is obviously the superstar in this quick and simple dish. Use those knife skills you've been working on to dice some peppers, onions, and cilantro or parsley, and top with some avocado, then mix up the simple-yet-flavorful dressing and—boom! A salad sure to make you sing from the rooftops (well, maybe not quite), but it will get you out the door, content and happy.

Camila P. ( 3mo ) – Nice recipes, yummy. By the way My name is Camila i live in Venezuela with my husband. My husband was a chronic cheat. He always want to hurt me with other women, including women that are less beautiful than i am. Mind you, he was never like this. He used to be a sweet, loving and caring husband but all of a sudden he changed and i couldn’t find any reason why he changed. The disrespect was so much that i almost gave up on my marriage. But i found a solution when i saw different testimonies in a Forum about a man called Dr Okosu. People testified of different good works he has done for them. I decided to give him a trial, i contacted him and he was able to help me. He told me my husband was under a strong force. He was able to break the force and set my husband free. My husband is back to the Loving and caring man he has always been. He now support me in everyway and we now go on vacations. I am so happy. Thank you Sir. Just as i promised, this testimony i will continue to share for the world to know the good thing you have done. His email drokosu01@gmail.com
