My Favorite Kale & Quinoa Salad

  1. 1/2c olive oil (or avocado oil)

  2. 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar (I recommend Bragg’s)

  3. 3 tbsp fresh lemon juice

  4. 1 tbsp maple syrup

  5. 2 tsp dijon mustard


  1. 4c kale, ribs removed, leaves shredded/chopped finely

  2. 3/4c cooked quinoa (cooled, leftovers work well!)

  3. 1/2 c pomegranate - dried cherries or cranberries also work

  4. 1 perfect avocado, diced

  5. 1/2c chopped pecans, almonds or walnuts Make the dressing first.  Remove the ribs from the kale (discard the ribs), and finely shred the leaves.  Massage the dressing into the leaves (you likely won't want to use all of the dressing, so start with half).  Add the cooked and cooled quinoa, and the nuts, and toss to blend.  Top with the avocado and pomegranate.  Enjoy!
