This salad is hearty and healthy.  It is full of superfoods and antioxidants.  Not to mention, it is delicious any time of year!



1 ½ cups quinoa

4 cups chopped kale

2 cups chopped apple (tart)

½ cup dried cherries

½ cup toasted almonds

1 can chickpeas (I roast them)


¼ c. balsamic vinegar

2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice

¼ cup extra virgin olive oil

1 ½ tsp. minced garlic

2 tbsp. fresh parsley

½ red onion, chopped


Cook quinoa according to the directions.  When done, stir in the kale while it is still hot.  It will soften the kale just a little bit.  Cool the salad in the refrigerator. 


Mix together the dressing:  olive oil, vinegar, garlic, lemon juice, and chopped red onion. Blend well.


Add the apples, garbanzos, parsley, and dried cherries to the cooled quinoa mix.  Pour the dressing over the top and mix together.
