Kale and Avocado Salad with French Dressing

This is for sure my go-to salad. I always make up this dressing in big batches as it will last for at least a few weeks. Then it’s always ready to go and you can use it on all kinds of salads too! I also always like to dress the kale first thing so that it wilts slightly whilst I’m preparing everything else. It makes it a lot softer and nicer to eat, not so chewy!
