Red bell bepper, avocado and garlic

Simple Summer Salad with Homemade Balsamic Dressing

Prep Time: 5 minutes Cook Time: 0 minutes

Is there anything more satisfying than enjoying a big bowl of fresh greens? We think not. While this salad seems simple, its classic combination of avocado & ripe tomatoes makes for the perfect fresh side or main dish.


  • 4 - 5 Cups Kale, Freshly Chopped
  • 1 Large Red Pepper, Cubed
  • 1/2 Large Avocado, Sliced
  • 1-2 Handfuls Cherry Tomatoes, Halved
  • 3/4 Cup Olive Oil
  • 1 Clove Garlic, Minced
  • 1/4 Cup Balsamic Vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice, Freshly Squeezed
  • 1/2 Tablespoon Maple Syrup, (Optional)


1. Wash, dry & chop all vegetables & greens to prepare for salad. For those who are looking for a heartier salad, we’ve often added ½ cup of lentils, quinoa, or garbanzo beans for extra plant protein.
2. In a medium bowl, combine all dressing ingredients & either whisk together or blend on low for 2 minutes. **(While you’ll still find yourself with a great dressing by simply whisking all ingredients together, I prefer blending them for a thicker & more evenly distributed dressing).
3. Dress your greens when ready to eat to prevent kale from wilting and overdressing your vegetables. - Enjoy!
