Ingredients

  • 1 bunch kale lacinato or Tuscan
  • 1 cup quinoa dry
  • 2 cups blueberries
  • 1 English cucumber sliced
  • 1 avocado
  • 2 beets spiralized

Basil Balsamic Dressing

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 6 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh basil

Instructions

  • Cook quinoa per package ingredients, and cool.
  • Add all dressing ingredients to a blender and pulse until basil is chopped fine.
  • Destem and shred kale. Pour dressing on the kale, and massage dressing into the kale. Refrigerate while preparing the rest of the ingredients to allow to soften.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients into the salad and serve. The salad is great on days 2 and 3 because the kale and beets stay firm and soak in the dressing.
