Ingredient Notes For This Blueberry, Avocado and Kale Salad:
- Prep – You can cook the quinoa in advance, then prep all the other ingredients and store them in individual containers until you’re ready to assemble. (If you are interested, below the recipe card, I share a link to my favorite glass containers).
- Quinoa – A serving size is 1/4 cup of dry quinoa. So, for a family of four, that is a total of 1 cup. However, if that is too much, just cut it by half. (FYI: I do cut it in half in my recipe card).
- Kale – Make sure to remove the rib, because it tends to be very fibrous.
- Cheese – For this recipe, I use goat cheese. It tastes so good! However, if need be, you can omit it.
- Vinaigrette – Below I share an easy, homemade dressing that is delicious. (If you need a quicker option, a store bought, light vinaigrette will work great here too).
- FYI: The Lemon-Herb Vinaigrette can be prepared in advance. If so, remove from the fridge and let it sit out on the counter for awhile before using. This just allows it to come to room temperature, which makes it easier to mix up again.
