In This Recipe
1. Shred kale into palm sized pieces into a large bowl. Discard the hard, fibrous ribs and stalks. Splash with the olive oil and gently massage the kale until the pieces become soft and slightly darker in color. The overall mass of the kale will decrease greatly.
2. Add salt, pepper, vinegar, cilantro, tangerine juice and garlic and toss until all of the greens are drenched in the liquid and aromatics.
3. Incorporate the rest of the chopped ingredients, seeds and black beans, stirring until everything is incorporated. Chill until serving!
