Blackberry Kale Salad with Rosemary Almonds

4 cups baby kale or any type of salad greens you like
1 cup blackberries
1 avocado, sliced

Rosemary Almonds

Dressing:
4 tablespoons lemon juice
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Add 1 teaspoon honey to dressing if desired

Rosemary Almonds

2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 cup sliced almonds
pinch of Himalayan salt
pinch of  fresh cracked black pepper
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary, chopped very finely
2 teaspoons honey

In a heavy cast iron pan over medium high heat, add the olive oil and the almonds. Keep the pan moving as the almonds begin to get toasted. As the nuts start to brown, salt, pepper and rosemary. Toss for one more second then add the honey. Stir until all of the almonds are coated. Continue for just a few more seconds, remove from the heat and allow the nuts to cool in the pan for just a few minutes. If you take off the heat too early the honey will be sticky so let it caramelize just a couple seconds.
