Make dressing by adding all ingredients to a Mason Jar and shake until well dispersed. Remember to reserve 1 teaspoon of lemon juice.
Add chopped kale to a large bowl and add reserved lemon juice. Using your hands, massage lemon into kale for about 2-3 minutes until leaves are bright green and tender.
To the kale, add remaining salad ingredients and mix to fully combine components.
