Quinoa and Kale Salad


  • 1/2                 cup quinoa
  • 1                    cup water
  • 1/2                 tsp salt
  • 2                    kale leaves
  • 1/2                 cup diced (1/4”) cucumber
  • 1/2                 cup diced (1/4”) carrots
  • 1/2                 cup diced (1/4”) red pepper
  • 10                  small cherry tomatoes cut in half
  • 3                    spring onions sliced very thin
  • 1                    tbsp chopped mint leaves
  • 2                    tbsp chopped cilantro
  • 1                    lime, Juice and zest
  • 1/2                 tsp freshly ground black pepper


  1. In a medium saucepan add the water, salt and quinoa and bring it to a boil on high heat.
  2. Lower the heat to mark 4 and let it simmer for about 10 minutes.  Quinoa will split open and will look like a sprouted seed.  Let it cool completely.
  3. Remove the middle stalk from kale and chop the leaves  into thin strips.  Rinse it in cold water.
  4. Add everything together and mix it.
  5. Serve.
