Baby Kale and Avocado Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette

Fresh, flavorful and super healthy, summer pick me up

This green and scrumptious salad has it all.  It has the fresh and nutrient-packed baby kale that perfectly complements the buttery and filling avocado pieces. It has crunchy and flavorful pine nuts and a sprinkle of savory Parmesan cheese slivers. All combined and mixed with a lemony vinaigrette dressing. 

Add a few saltines on the sides and you’re set for a perfect, light and satisfying summer lunch!
