100g Kale 

100g Red Cabbage

2 Tablespoons Chopped Dates 

1 Tablespoon of Pumpkin Seeds

Tahini Dressing

2. Shred the red cabbage.

3. Make the dressing by placing all dressing ingredients in a bowl and stir until well combined.

4. Mix the kale, cabbage, dates and dressing together.

5. Sprinkle pumpkin seeds and goji berries on top before serving.
