Fresh lime juice- 3 tbsp
Extra virgin olive oil- 2 tbsp
1 bunch kale, ribs removed- leaves thinly sliced
Soft dates- 1/4 cup sliced
Cranberries- 1/8 cup
Honey crisp apples- 1, sliced thin and long
Carrots- 1/2 cut into match stick size strips
Purple cabbage- 1/4 cup chopped (optional)
Roasted pumpkin seeds- 1/4 cup
Freshly ground pepper
Whisk together lemon juice, olive oil and salt. Toss kale in this mixture, allow to stand for 10 minutes. Massage the kale in between, which helps it to soften….
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!
