Ingredients

Instructions

  • Rinse and drain the kale.
  • Cook the quinoa in 600ml vegetable stock, then allow it to drain and cool.
  • Lightly toast the almonds in a small saucepan.
  • Combine the kale, cooked quinoa, toasted almonds, golden raisins, pepper and cucumber in a large mixing bowl.
  • Add the salad dressing and, using your hands, combine the salad together with the dressing for a few minutes. At this point you should remove any hard kale stalks you might find.
  • The salad is ready to eat once combined well, but I prefer to refrigerate it overnight to allow the dressing to marinate through.

Notes

Best made and left to marinate overnight in the fridge.
Good as a side with grilled chicken breast.
