  4. Transfer the bread cubes to the baking tray and bake for 15 minutes or until crispy golden.

Salad Instructions

  1. Into a bowl, add the shredded kale, and 1 tbsp of olive oil. Massage the kale for 3 minutes or until soft. Brush the lemon juice over the avocado.
  2. Add the kale, iceberg lettuce, avocado, and bread croutons to a large bowl.
