Author Susan Evans, Certified Clinical Herbalist



  • 3 tablespoons fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 3 tablespoons avocado or olive oil
  • 1 ½ tablespoons honey or agave
  • 1-2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard


  • 3 cups baby kale chopped into small pieces
  • 3-4 scallions chopped
  • 1 cup cherries or blueberries (if cherries, pitted and chopped)
  • ½ cup shelled pistachios cashews or nuts of choice
  • 2 cups shredded cooked chicken optional
  • Salt and pepper to taste.

  1. Whisk or shake dressing ingredients together. I make all my homemade dressings in re-purposed kombucha and tea bottles. Mix all salad ingredients with the exception of the avocado together. Add dressing to coat and stir gently. Fold in avocados and enjoy!
