Massaged kale salad topped with a grass-fed burger, radishes, bell peppers and avocado.




  • 1lb grass-fed beef
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper


  • 5 cups kale, ribs removed and chopped
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 radishes, sliced (I used watermelon radishes)
  • 1 bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • ½ cup saurkraut (optional)


  1. Preheat the grill to 450 or a large skillet to medium high heat.
  2. Put the ground beef in a large bowl with the spices and mix together. Divide the meat in to 4 large burger patties.
  3. Place the burgers on the grill and cook for about 3 minutes a side or place in large skillet and cook for about 5 minutes a side or longer if needed.
  4. Put the chopped kale in a large bowl and pour the olive oil over the leaves. Use both hands to massage and kneed the oil in to the greens to tenderize the leaves.
  5. Divide the kale among four bowls and then divide the rest of the toppings evenly.
  6. Place the cooked burger on top and then serve with your favorite salad dressing.
