Kale Red Quinoa Salad
Say hello to my new favorite chopped salad that just happens to star two super foods – kale and quinoa! This salad pops with complex flavors and textures plus it is healthy, filling, and delicious.
The secret to making raw kale really tasty is to massage it, this tenderizes the kale, and breaks down its fibrous nature creating a really delicious dish.
Simpli’s Red Quinoa offers a rich and nutty taste with a hearty texture creating an incredible base to layer on. The Quinoa Kale Salad is tossed in the light and vibrant Apple Cider Vinaigrette, giving a fresh and tangy taste.
Here’s a salad that’s beautifully fresh, saves well for meals throughout the week, and pairs well with many proteins.
