Delicious Kale & Quinoa Salad

Author: Jenn


  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup quinoa rinsed if necessary
  • about 2 cups chopped kale less or more to taste
  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1 large garlic clove minced
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese


  • Bring water to boil in a medium-sized pan. Stir quinoa into boiling water. Reduce heat to medium-low, place lid on pan and cook until water absorbs into quinoa, about 12 minutes.
  • When the water is absorbed, remove the pan from the heat and let rest, covered, for 5 minutes. Remove cover and allow quinoa to cool completely.
  • Place kale in a large mixing bowl. Whisk olive oil, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, garlic, pepper and salt together in a small bowl. Drizzle over kale. Stir and let sit for a few minutes. Add cooled quinoa, pecans, dried cranberries and feta cheese and toss to incorporate. ENJOY!!
