  • Take the washed, dried Kale leaves. Remove the stems and the center tough vein . Chop the leaves into bite size pieces. Add in a bowl.
  • Add the cooled tempering( fodni/ jhauka)and massage the kale leaves for two minutes. You will notice that the tough leaves soften and absorb the flavor of the oil. Now, remove the chili if wanted.
  • Make the dressing- Simply combine all ingredients for the dressing and blend until smooth and creamy with a whisk. It makes about ½ cup dressing. If the pineapple is not sweet and tangy, you may need to add some sugar and lime juice.
  • To the massaged greens, add the reserved pineapple pieces, diced apple, blackberries. Pour some of the dressing, toss well
