This salad brings out the best in kale, a phytonutrient-rich food that provides more immune-enhancing vitamin C than other leafy greens. Dark green dinosaur (Tuscan) kale is less bitter than its curly-leaf cousin, but either type will work. Crunchy pumpkin seeds serve as more than a garnish—they contain zinc, a mineral that regulates the production of infection-fighting white blood cells.
- 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 break down and turn bright green.
- Add remaining ingredients and season to taste with sea salt and pepper; toss gently to combine. Serve cold or at room temperature.
