30 Minute Greek Kale Quinoa Salad. Loaded with tons of vegetables and tossed with lemon and olive oil!
I have been on a kale and quinoa kick every since I made this Chopped Kale Quinoa and Avocado Salad. The crunch of the kale and the protein from the quinoa make this the perfect healthy lunch or light dinner.
This vegetarian salad is loaded with tons of vegetables. Kale, cherry tomatoes, cucumber and red onion. The salad gets drizzled with fresh lemon juice and extra virgin olive oil. This salad takes less than 30 minutes to put together from start to finish.
All the flavors of a Greek Salad you love with quinoa and kale for added health benefits. Kale is loaded with protein and is full of essential vitamins and minerals. Quinoa is high in fiber and protein.
This Greek Kale Quinoa Salad is light and fresh. It would make a great dish for meatless Monday!
While the quinoa is cooking I like to chop up all of my vegetables. Toss everything together and serve.
Red quinoa can be substituted in this recipe. It would go perfectly in this colorful salad.
