This one goes out to the one I love (Erin)

Note: May I suggest following this to the tune of a Dick in a Box?

Hey Erin, I got somethin' real important to tell you
So just sit down and read...

Girl you know we've been friends such a long, long time (such a long time)
And you've always got avocados on your mind
(Wooow) You know it's Spring and they're on sale everywhere (everywhere)
Gonna give you a recipe that tells you what to do (what to do)
A recipe so tasty, and vegetarian too
Take a look at this:

It's a kale and avocado salad (it's a salad)
Not gonna talk 'bout a hunk of steak
That sorta thing might make you quake
Not gonna make you do something hard
Girl you'll barely leave your yard
Not gonna need to buy a lot of things
A girl like you will want to sing
Wanna tell you 'bout somethin' that don't take long
Somethin' good girl
It's a kale and avocado salad, a kale and avocado salad girl
It's a kale and avocado salad, a kale and avocado salad girl
See I'm wise enough to know when a recipe needs makin' (girl)
And I got just the one, somethin' that ya know is second to none
To all the people out there with mouths to feed
It's easy to do just follow these steps:

Kale and Avocado Salad
Adapted from Saveur

1: Make a dressing
Whisk together 1/2 cup fresh orange juice, 3 tbsp fresh lemon juice, 2 tsp soy sauce (I'd recommend a Japanese brand) and 1 clove of garlic, smashed and chopped into a paste. Slowly whisk in 4 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil and set the dressing aside.

2: Cut some stuff up
Stem and finely chop a bunch of kale (about 3/4 lb). Peel, pit and halve 3 avocados. Cut 2 avocados into 1/2" cubes and thinly slice the remaining avocado.

3: Mix it all together
Toss the kale, cubed avocado and 1/2 tbsp raw hemp seeds (purely optional; if you want to try this I have plenty to spare and share) with the dressing. Season generously with salt and pepper and top with the sliced avocado and another 1/2 tbsp raw hemp seeds.

And that's the way you do it
It's a kale and avocado salad, for 4 to 6
It's a kale and avocado salad, a kale and avocado salad girl.
