Citrus Kale and Quinoa Salad

Citrus Kale and Quinoa Salad

This citrus salad definitely fulfills your citrus and green needs.


I love a salad that is full of texture. I added the quinoa to make this a lunch that will keep me going all afternoon. It definitely did the trick.

I found this amazing lacinato kale at whole foods and knew I had to have some. It was the most gorgeous green and soo full of life. It seriously was the best kale I’ve ever tasted. I’m not a huge kale fan either. It paired perfectly with this citrus dressing.
