Massaged kale salad

Massaged kale salad

1 bunch kale
2 tbsp pumpkin seeds
1/4 -1/2 cup chopped mango
3 tbsp thinly sliced carrot
1 tsp honey
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 avocado sliced
salt and black pepper to taste

step 1
Toast the pumpkin seeds in a pan or in oven.Whisk lemon juice, honey and fresh black pepper in a small bowl. Remove stalks from Kale and tear into bite size pieces. Rinse the leaves really well. Quick dry in a salad spinner if you have one or just pat with tea or paper towel. Place kale leaves in a glass bowl. Drizzle olive oil and sprinkle some salt over it. Wash your hands and start massaging the kale leaves. Keep doing this for 2 minutes. The leaves will soften and shrink in volume. Throw away the thin stalks that break while massaging.

Transfer to a serving plate. Add chopped mango and sliced carrot. Pour the dressing over the kale and add the toasted pumpkin seeds. Toss and serve garnished with sliced avocado.

step 2
Cooking time is only for toasting pepitas otherwise salad does not need any cooking.
