How To Prepare Kale Crunch Salad With Avocado and Sourdough Croutons ?


Preparation time: 10 mins

Cooking time: 15 mins

Serving: 1


  • 3 slices sourdough bread
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Red pepper flakes
  • 3 tablespoons tahini
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 teaspoon spicy brown mustard
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Red pepper flakes
  • 1¼ cups Tuscan kale, tough stems removed and chopped
  • 1 cup white beans
  • 1/2 to 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds, plus extra for topping
  • 1 avocado, diced


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Cut the slices of sourdough bread into cubes. In a medium bowl, combine the olive oil with salt, black pepper and red pepper flakes to taste. Toss the bread cubes in the oil to coat. Spread the cubes in a single layer on the baking sheet and bake for 10 to 15 minutes, rotating the sheet and tossing the croutons halfway through. Remove from the oven and let cool on the baking sheet. The croutons will crisp up more as they cool.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the tahini, olive oil, and lemon juice with salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes to taste. If the mixture starts to seize (it will look grainy and coagulated), add a few teaspoons of cold water to thin it out.
  4. Add the cleaned and de-stemmed kale to a large bowl. Pour the dressing over the leafy greens and gently massage the kale into the dressing well until the kale breaks down. The greens will become softer and less fibrous, making them easier to eat than leaving them raw.
  5. Add the diced avocado, white beans, halved grape tomatoes and sunflower seeds to the massaged kale and toss together. Top with additional croutons if desired and enjoy!
