Cut cucumber in half lengthwise and seed. Place cucumber seeds in bowl of food processor or blender container. Add lime juice, olive oil, garlic, honey, salt and pepper. Process until well blended.
In large bowl, massage half the dressing into kale with hands until leaves are coated and kale has turned a bit darker in color. (If using mixed greens, omit this step.)
Slice seeded cucumber; toss cucumber, kiwifruit, edamame and pistachios with kale and remaining dressing. Serve immediately.
