Massaged Kale and Quinoa Salad – my go-to kale salad! It’s super simple, loaded with plant protein, vitamins, and healthy fats (yet, oil-free!) It has tons of flavor and texture! Even the kids gobble this one up!
I love making a big bowl of kale salad to eat throughout the week. Kale is hearty and sturdy and, even coated in dressing, will stay fresh for days.
Massaging the kale with the avocado, lemon juice, and salt, breaks down the fibrous texture and makes it tender and easy to eat. It’s the only way I can get my kids to eat it…unless I hide it in something like my Kidney Bean and Kale BBQ Burgers!
Packing this salad with quinoa and almonds boosts the protein and makes it all the more satiating. Sweet, juicy clementine segments balance the flavors and makes it more kid friendly.
This Massaged Kale and Quinoa Salad is sure to become a staple at your house, too!
