Wash and cut all produce and set aside.
Place all dressing ingredients in a blender or magic bullet and blend until creamy.
Place kale in a large salad bowl and drizzle dressing over kale.
With clean hands, gently squeeze the dressing into the kale for about 30 seconds. This helps to break down the cell walls of the kale, which makes the nutrients more bio available.
Place remaining produce in the bowl with kale and toss to coat.
