Dark green dinosaur (Tuscan) kale is less bitter than its curly-leaf cousin, but either type will work. Pumpkin seeds add a seasonal crunch.

  1. . In a large bowl, combine kale, olive oil, lemon juice, and a pinch of sea salt. Massage kale with your hands for a few minutes until it begins to soften and turn bright-dark green. Add remaining ingredients and season to taste with sea salt and pepper; toss gently to combine. Serve cold or at room temperature.
