- 1 tbsp olive oil

- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
For the Caesar Vinaigrette
- 1/4 cup olive oil

For the salad
- 4 cups green kale, finely chopped

Preheat the oven to 325°F. Line a small baking sheet with parchment paper.

Bake until they are crisp and golden, about 30 minutes, tossing at least once during the cooking process. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.

In a large bowl, combine the green kale, Lacinato kale, parsley, and the Caesar vinaigrette. Toss well.
Serve immediately topped with the Crunchy Chickpea Croutons and sliced avocado.
