QUICK KALE SALAD

This kale salad recipe is quick and easy to throw together and most importantly, everyone loves it!  I brought this for our Easter potluck and contrary to the popular action of those running away from kale, everyone dig right in! There's so much in it that some may not even realize there's kale at first ;)

Check out the recipe below.  Note that portions of each ingredient may change depending on your taste buds. Have fun with it and throw things in there that YOU love!

  • 4 cups kale, chopped
  • 1 cup shredded carrots, diced
  • 2 pink lady apples, diced
  • 2 ripe avocados, quartered
  • 1 cup quinoa (To prepare, boil one cup water with 1/2 cup uncooked quinoa. Simmer on medium until water is absorbed.)
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil

Toss kale in a bowl with extra virgin olive oil and lemon until marinated.  Combine all remaining ingredients slowly. Leave a few of the ingredients for toppings for that extra pretty appeal. ;)
