I love quinoa, and it is a great addition to any salad to make it heartier.

Here’s my easy, go-to quinoa and kale salad recipe! Let me know what you think.

 

Salad Ingredients (4 Servings):

2 cups spinach

2 cups chopped kale

1 avocado

½ cup cooked quinoa

½ cup dried cranberries or pomegranate arils

Vinaigrette Ingredients (4 servings):

¼ cup of extra virgin olive oil

¼ cup apple cider vinegar

3 tablespoons of a squeezed lemon or lime

1 tablespoon of agave

Lemon or lime zest

A pinch of salt and pepper

 

Directions:

Salad: Combine all ingredients into a bowl. Cook quinoa and add to salad mixture.

Toss and serve immediately!

Bon Appetit!
