Instructions
  1. Whisk together tahini, orange juice, lemon juice, vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, and pepper. The dressing should be thin enough to pour — if it needs to be thinner, add 1 teaspoon of water at a time until desired consistency is reached.
  2. Toss the kale and dressing together in a large salad bowl. Using your hands, or a large spoon, press the kale leaves into the bowl to soften them. Continue this for about 1 minute, until the kale looks just slightly wilted and has reduced in volume by about 1/4.
  3. Add sunflower seeds and chopped apple and toss again to mix all ingredients thoroughly.
  4. Top with grilled or roasted chicken.
