Kale Apple and Quinoa Salad
Ingredients: Salad 1/2 cup tricolor dry quinoa 6 cups slightly packed chopped kale (it will take about 1 1/2 bunches. Remove thick ribs before chopping, 6 oz chopped) 2 crisp sweet apples, cored and chopped
1 cup walnuts, lightly toasted and roughly chopped 1/2 cup dried cranberries 4 oz feta cheese, crumbled
Dressing 1/2 cup olive oil 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice 2 Tbsp honey 1 1/2 tsp dijon mustard Mineral salt to taste Directions: Cook quinoa according to directions on package and cool completely. While quinoa is cooling, whisk together all of the dressing ingredients in a jar or bowl. Add kale to a salad bowl, whisk dressing once more then pour 3/4 of the dressing over kale and toss until kale is evenly coated. Cover bowl and chill 15 minutes (adding the dressing and letting it rest helps soften kale a bit).
