Serves 2 (2 large salads or 4 side salads)
Rinse and dry kale leaves. Fold leaf in half. Pull out center rib and discard. Tear leaves into bite-sized pieces. Place in a large bowl with citrus juices, olive oil, salt and pepper. Massage kale with your hands until it begins to break down and wilt. It will darken in color. (Usually takes 3 to 5 minutes.) Gently fold in remaining ingredients and toss gently.
