Kale and Quinoa Salad

I think I’ve said this before but.. salad’s are my favourite. When you tell people you had salad for dinner, they either think you’re depriving yourself, or you’re boring. Well I am here to tell you that my salads are never dull, small, or boring!

For this salad you need quinoa, kale, mushrooms, red pepper, carrots, cucumber, dried cranberries, walnuts, and sunflower seeds.

2. Cut up your veggies into small pieces.

3. Pour 2 cups of water into a pot, and boil on high. Add in 1 cup of quinoa. Once it starts to boil, turn it down to medium, and cook until your quinoa is soft and fluffy looking. You may or may not need to add more water depending on how it absorbs it and cooks.

5. Add in all of your veggies, along with dried cranberries, walnuts, and sunflower seeds.

6. Top with your favourite kind of dressing. I used mixed berry vinaigrette.

I ate my salad with a side of broccoli, asparagus, and sweet potato fries. Enjoy! 🙂
