Asian Kale Salad with Edamame and Avocado is full of Asian flavor with a simple sesame dressing that along with plenty of edamame, avocado, carrots, and apple.

By Friday I am usually looking to clean out my fridge and use up any veggies that have been hiding out in the fridge all week. It's the day before we head to the farmer's market and the time when I assess what we'll need for the week. This week I was staring at a fridge full of kale as well as some leftovers apples, carrots, and avocado. Since I was in the mood for something Asian, I decided to throw together a big kale salad and fell in love with the outcome. The sesame dressing pairs really well with the kale and the apple brings in just enough sweetness. For this one, I went for a vegetarian version, but you could always add some grilled chicken to bulk up the protein.
