Kale + Quinoa Salad
L’s sister-in-law Jaclyn brought a delicious kale quinoa salad to a recent family gathering in Statesboro. The healthy and delicious dish had everyone talking (in a good way)! In true glitter girl spirit, she agreed to share the recipe with us.
What You Need:
- a few cups of cooked quinoa
- a few cups of chopped kale
- crumbled feta
- golden raisins
- chopped red onion
- a few TBSP of dressing (balsamic vinegar, olive oil, fresh lemon juice, spicy brown mustard, herbes de Provence). Jaclyn says: I’ve made the dressing, but I think any olive oil balsamic blend would work. I only used 2 – 3 TBSP of Organicville Herbes de Provence Vinaigrette for the big bowl (doubled recipe) I took to the reunion.
What You Do:
Just mix it all up and chill for a few hours to blend flavors. This salad will keep for several days…as long as you don’t eat it all at once.
This is an easy and forgiving recipe. I couldn’t find plain quinoa at the grocery in Statesboro, so I used an Olive Oil and Rosemary flavored box. Totally fine! I also added a little basil from my herb garden. Chopped walnuts and diced carrots could turn this side salad into a hearty meal. Bottom line: add whatever sounds good to you.
