Fiesta Kale Salad

1 bunch kale (about 9-10 large leaves)
1 red bell pepper, core and seeds removed, diced
3 tomatoes, diced
1 cucumber, peeled and diced
1/4 red onion, chopped

2 large avocados, pitted and peeled
juice from 1 lime
1/3 cup water
1/4 tsp of ground chipotle pepper (or more if you like spicy foods)

salt to taste

Remove tough stems from the kale and tear leaves into bite-size pieces. Wash the leaves and drain excess water. Place the kale into a large bowl.
Put all ingredients for the dressing into a blender and blend until smooth and creamy, adding more water if the dressing is too thick. Pour the dressing over kale leaves. Massage the dressing into kale with your hands, making sure each leaf is covered.
Add the the rest of the vegetables and toss with kale. season with salt to taste.
