Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Prep the kale

In a large bowl, combine the kale with half the house dressing, season with salt and pepper, and gently massage the leaves (set aside the remaining dressing for serving). Let stand while you prepare the rest of the meal.

2

Prep and cook the chicken

  • Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel. Cut the chicken crosswise into ½-inch-thick strips; season lightly with salt and pepper.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, add the chicken and cook, stirring once or twice, until browned and cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Add more oil between batches if needed.
While the chicken cooks, prepare the remaining ingredients.

3

Prep the remaining ingredients; assemble the salad

  • Cut the green beans into 1-inch lengths.
  • Scrub or peel the carrot and trim the ends; thinly slice the carrot on the diagonal.
  • Core and cut the apple into ½-inch pieces.
  • Cut the avocado in half lengthwise. Remove the pit, scoop out the flesh, and cut the flesh into ½-inch pieces.
To the bowl with the kale, add the green beans, carrot, apple, avocado, walnuts, and chicken and toss to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the salad to individual bowls and serve the remaining dressing on the side.
