Kale, Macadamia and Tomato Salad

Kale is a true superfood. Combining it with other nutritional powerhouses, macadamias and avocado, means this salad is supercharged!

Serves 2

Prep time 20 minutes

Great for lunch


  • 100g kale, stalks removed, leaves shredded
  • 1 tomato, finely sliced
  • 30g macadamias, roughly chopped
  • 1 zucchini, cut into ribbons
  • 80g avocado
  • 100g low-fat Greek-style yoghurt
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Pinch of dried chilli flakes


1. Place the kale, tomato, macadamias and zucchini in a large bowl and toss to combine. Arrange on serving plates. Season with freshly ground black pepper.

2. Place the avocado, yoghurt, lemon juice and chilli flakes in a small food processor (or use a hand-held blender) and blitz until smooth.

3. Drizzle the avocado dressing over the salad and serve.

Tip: Use a vegetable peeler to cut the zucchini into ribbons. If you are unable to find kale, baby spinach or rocket leaves also work well in this salad
