New Recipe: Citrus Kale Salad

My friend Lila Anna gave me this recipe on Friday during our semi-regular morning at Starbucks. In fact, I scribbled it on the back on a Starbucks receipt. She says that even her kids love this, and it gets better the longer it sits.

I just made this for a cookout with my family later  this evening, but early tastings were promising!


  • Kale, one bunch (I used bagged kale, one bag – stems)
  • 1/4 c. olive oil
  • 1/4 c lemon juice
  • 1/4 c honey or agave nectar
  • 1 mango, cubed (I added a little extra)
  • 1/4 c. sunflower or pumpkin seeds


  1. Wash kale. Remove stems, cut into smaller pieces.
  2. Combine olive oil, lemon juice, honey/agave. Whisk well, drizzle over kale.
  3. Massage kale and drizzle under kale wilts. (About 3-4 minutes.)
  4. Cube mango, add to kale.
  5. Stir in sunflower/pumpkin seeds.
  6. Refrigerate up to four hours before serving.
