Instructions
  1. Place the chopped kale in a bowl, drizzle some olive oil over it and massage into the kale. This will take some of the bitter kale taste away.

  3. Squeeze the juice of one lime or lemon over the top, you may add more olive oil it you'd like.
  4. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and red pepper flakes.
  5. You can put it in the fridge for a bit so the tastes can blend, then ENJOY.
Notes
  1. Honey is optional if you like a sweeter sauce.
  2. The other day I substitute the chickpeas with shelled soy beans and it was delish!
