In a large bowl, mix the kale, olive oil and salt. Gently massage the kale with your hands until it begins to break up and soften. You don’t want it soggy, so be careful not to over-work.
To prepare the maple and tahini mayo, simply whisk everything in a bowl until you reach your desired consistency.
Gently toss the kale mixture and the remaining salad ingredients together. Add the maple and tahini mayo and toss together thoroughly.
Serve immediately or store covered in the refrigerator for up to 2 days until you are ready to serve.
