  • 5-6 cups of kale, chopped and stems removed
  • ¾ cup carrots, cut into matchsticks
  • ¾ cup red cabbage, chopped or shredded
  • ¼- ½  tsp. Celtic sea salt, or to taste
  • 2 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 – 2 Tbs. unrefined sesame oil (optional)
  • ¼ cup hulled sesame seeds
  • pinch black pepper
  • daikon radish, carrot, dill and pomegranate seeds for garnishing

Combine kale, cabbage and carrots together in a bowl, add lemon juice and salt, and massage with your hands lightly until the kale leaves start to look wilted. Add oil, sesame seeds and black pepper, and mix well with a spoon. Transfer to a serving bowl. For a special holiday garnish, you can make a candle out of daikon radish, attach a flame made out of carrot (held in place with a toothpick), and place some dill sprigs around the candle, sprinkled with pomegranate seeds and daikon “stars”.
