Ingredients

  • SALAD:
  • 1 large bunch Kale, chopped
  • 1 cup Blueberries, washed
  • 1-2 Avocados, pitted and diced
  • 1/2 cup Ancient Harvest Traditional Quinoa, cooked
  • Goat Cheese or Feta Crumbles, to taste
  • Slivered Almonds, to taste
  • LEMON-HERB VINAIGRETTE:
  • 1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil (good quality)
  • 1/2 large Lemon, freshly squeezed juice
  • 1/4 tsp Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Himalayan Pink Salt
  • 1 Garlic Clove, minced
  • 1/4 tsp Dried Thyme
  • 1/4 tsp Dried Rosemary
  • 1/4 tsp Dried Parsley

Instructions

  • Make the quinoa. Add 1/2 cup quinoa + 1 cup water to a small pot and cook according to package directions.
  • While the quinoa cooks, prep all the other ingredients and set aside.
  • Prepare the salad dressing. Add all the ingredients to a mason jar or a jar with a tight fitting lid. Shake until well combined.
  • Make the salad. Add the chopped kale, blueberries and avocado to your individual bowls, or to one large serving bowl.
  • Once it has cooled, add a generous amount of quinoa. Sprinkle cheese and slivered almonds on top. 
  • Drizzle the salad dressing over top right before serving.

Notes

  • Kale: Make sure to remove the rib, because it tends to be very fibrous. 
  • Prep Time: The prep time is included in the cook time.
