Fab and Festive Quinoa Kale salad

I was playing around in the kitchen the other day and came up with this…and it was so fabulous I just had to share!  Kale may not sound like your idea of a good salad, especially with no real dressing to speak of, but trust me–it’s better than it sounds.  Enjoy!

salad

  • EVOO
  • Fresh lemon juice
  • Jalapeno – diced
  • Kale (pulled off stem and diced)
  • Quinoa (cooked according to directions)
  • Pomegranates
  • Craisins

*Everything is “to taste”. Sorry! Just use your common sense and play around with it!

EVOO and Lemon juice form the “dressing”. I use just enough EVOO to mix in with greens. Add diced jalapeno to lemon and EVOO to flavor the dressing before mixing in with the salad. Add the diced kale, quinoa, pomegranate arils, and craisins.

**Did I mention this is one that will keep for days?!  Kale doesn’t wilt like lettuce does.
