Kale Quinoa Salad

I love kale, I love quinoa, and I love this salad. Something about the sweetness of grapes with the pepper, lemon zest. and creaminess of the cheese make this salad a hit. Not to mention Kale + Quinoa = major health benefits. 


To Make:
4 cups Organic kale, washed and chopped (make sure it's organic -- kale has quickly become a vegetable with the highest pesticides)
1/2 cup cooked Quinoa
Sunflower seeds
Diced red bell pepper
Halved seedless  red grapes
Parmesan Cheese

Dressing:
Olive Oil
Lemon

As always, I'm not big on measurements so use your judgement. For the dressing, we want about 2/3 part olive oil and 1/3 part lemon. Start by using your hands to massage the dressing into the kale. Raw kale can be hard on the digestive system, do make sure you soften it up a bit. From there combine all the above ingredients and you are good to go! Easy, breezy and seriously, a fab combination.
