Health benefits

It takes some shopping around to find a great avocado oil that still maintains all of its integrity from being a beautiful, ripe fruit full of nourishing fats to an oil without a lot of processing. You want to look for cold-pressed and naturally-processed. The fat in avocado oil, though a low amount, assists in absorbing the carotenoids in your food—those are the guys that roam around searching out free radicals. One place that avocado oil has a particularly great impact in free-radical absorption is the skin, assisting in repairing sun damage as well nourishing and moisturizing the skin. So technically we could name this salad: Skin nourishing kale and quinoa salad!
