Have you recovered? After tasting last week’s unbelievably delicious salad dressing?  In case you’ve run out of delicious things to drizzle it on, I’ve got the perfect salad for ya!.

In a med-large bowl combine:

1 head kale chopped, stems off (1 bag, 4-5 cups, more or less, doesn’t have to be exact)
3 celery sticks chopped
1/3 red onion chopped
1/3 cup pistachios chopped (actually I prefer them pulverized in to a chunky powder, which you can do with a rolling pin or hammer if you buy them shucked right in the bag)

 

Reminder recipe for the blow-your-mind-good dressing:

1 avocado
1 lemon, juice from
2 garlic cloves chopped
1/2 cup olive oil
salt and pepper to taste (about 3/4 tsp, 1/4 tsp, respectively)
