We’re currently in the slow process of looking to buy a house and our family agrees: backyard space is a priority (for our little guy and outdoor dinners). During the warmer months, there is nothing better than a backyard get-together that runs late into the evening. These types of dinners are the ones where food is consumed over the entire course of the evening and it doesn’t matter how beautiful the presentation.
So, when California Avocados asked for a recipe that was a great communal meal, I immediately turned to this kale salad. Both the kale and the chickpeas hold their own over time which means this salad can sit without fear of a wilted mess (although, I recommend serving the chickpeas on the side if you plan on letting this salad sit for some time). Also, I dress this salad heavier than I would a lettuce-based version. The dressing helps to soften the kale and keep the avocados a lovely green color.
