Wash leaves thoroughly (if you cannot find Baby Kale replace by Baby Spinach leaves).

Sprinkle with the Matcha-Coconut-Sesame Mix (1 Tsp Desiccated Coconut, 1 Tsp (toasted) Sesame seeds and the tip of a Matcha bamboo spoon), your choice of oil and freshly Cracked Black Pepper, and chopped Chives.
N.B. Matcha is very powerful in taste, a tiny bit suffices.
