  • Servings



  • 1

    bunch kale (black kale is especially good), stalks removed and discarded, leaves thinly sliced

  • 1

    lemon, juiced

  • ¼

    cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra for drizzling

  • Kosher salt

  • 2

    teaspoons honey

  • Freshly ground black pepper

  • 1

    mango, diced small (about 1 cup)

  • Small handful toasted pepitas ( pumpkin seeds), about 2 rounded tablespoons


In large serving bowl, add the kale, half of lemon juice, a drizzle of oil and a little kosher salt. Massage until the kale starts to soften and wilt, 2 to 3 minutes. Set aside while you make the dressing. In a small bowl, whisk remaining lemon juice with the honey and lots of freshly ground black pepper. Stream in the 1/4 cup of oil while whisking until a dressing forms, and you like how it tastes. Pour the dressing over the kale, and add the mango and pepitas. Toss and serve.
