DRESS IT UP DRESSING: KALE RED QUINOA SALAD

Say hello to our new favorite chopped salad that just happens to feature two superfoods: kale and quinoa! This salad pops with complex flavors and textures— plus it is healthy, filling, and delicious.

The secret to making raw kale really tasty is to massage it, this tenderizes the kale, and breaks down its fibrous nature creating a really delicious dish.

SIMPLi Red Quinoa offers a rich and nutty taste with a hearty texture creating an incredible base to layer on. The Quinoa Kale Salad is tossed in the light and vibrant Apple Cider Vinaigrette, giving a fresh and tangy taste.

Here’s a salad that’s beautifully fresh, saves well for meals throughout the week, and pairs well with many proteins.
