Kale Salad

A tasty recipe that is high in vitamins A, C and K, and is also moderately anti-inflammatory.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Cook quinoa according to directions and set aside.
  2. Chop kale and avocado into bite-sized pieces.
  3. Toss all ingredients together in a large bowl until the kale is well coated with the oil.
  4. Notes: this salad will keep for several days in an air-tight container. To keep longer, prepare the balsamic vinaigrette (vinegar, oil, salt and pepper,) and pour over the salad only once you are ready to eat it. Also try adding other fresh herbs for an extra boost of flavor and nutrients such as parsley, chervil and mint.

Amazing... I put drained canned tuna on top if I want to add some more protein, it blends really well with the salad!
