  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 bunch kale washed and torn into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • sprinkle of salt
  • 1 cup cucumber diced
  • 1 bell pepper diced
  • 1 avocado peeled and diced
  • Dressing:
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 TBSP lemon juice I used 1 large lemon
  • 2 TBSP dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  1. Bring the water and quinoa to a boil in a medium saucepan. Reduce heat to low, cover, and let simmer for 15 minutes or until quinoa is tender. When complete, remove from heat and let cool
  2. While quinoa cooks, place kale into your salad bowl and sprinkle some salt on the kale. Pour the 1 tsp oil on you hands and massage the kale with it for 2-3 minutes. This will help soften it.
  3. Add cucumber and pepper to kale mixture; when quinoa is cooled, add it, too (see note). Prepare dressing by combining all ingredients in a jar and shaking.
  4. Add avocado and dressing and toss; serve immediately.
