Then mix with dates, sliced apples, carrots, pumpkin seeds and cranberries. I also added some chopped purple cabbage which I had in hand. Add pepper and salt according to your taste, mix well and serve!

A very refreshing salad and having massaged the kale removed the bitter taste and eating with apples and dates gave the perfect sweetness to the salad!
