kale saladSummer time shouts cool salads and watery fruits and vegetables.  That’s why this kale and cucumber salad is perfect for this time of the month!

Ingredients:
1 large cucumber, diced
1 bunch of kale, de-stemmed and broken into bite sized pieces
1 tb lemon juice
olive oil or mashed avocado
sea salt to taste
optional: diced tomatoes and/or bell pepper
