1 medium tomato, chopped
1 cucumber, diced
1 orange or yellow bell pepper, de-stemmed, seeded and chopped

2 ½ tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 soft dates, pitted and chopped
½ teaspoon Himalayan crystal salt
Pinch black pepper
Pinch nutmeg
2 tablespoons raisins, I like cranberries

Place kales in a large bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients except for the hemp seeds. Use your hands and message all the ingredients well. This incorporates the avocado and fresh juices from the tomatoes, cucumbers, and lemon juice, with the kale, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Sprinkle on the hemp seeds. Give a quick toss
