Tear the kale from stem and chiffonade (the French word for shred) into bite-sized pieces. Place in a bowl and add the strawberries.
To make the vinaigrette; on a separate bowl, whisk the lemon juice, olive oil, agave, salt, and pepper. Pour it over the salad. For an extra kick, splash squeezed orange juice over the salad.
Massage with your hands until soft, about 15 seconds (this makes the kale easier to eat) Enjoy!
