Step 1
Tear the kale into smaller pieces or slice thinly. Separately, tear the lettuce leaves into smaller pieces. Remove mint leaves from the stems and combine with the lettuce. If the leaves are too big, slice them. Refrigerate until ready to use.
Step 2
In a large frying pan, heat the olive oil and pop the cumin seeds. Immediately add the kale and cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until it is wilted. Transfer to a large bowl. Add the maple syrup, serrano pepper, lemon juice and salt and mix until incorporated. Fold in the red lettuce leaves and sesame seeds. Serve immediately.
