Nut, Seed & Quinoa Kale Salad

In the spirit of the holidays I wanted to prepare a salad that had some warming spices, some crunch but was also cleansing and tasty!

Nut, Seed & Quinoa Salad:

Baby Kale or Chopped Kale
Red Quinoa
Black Beans
1 Avocado
Nut & Seed Mix I made: pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, walnuts, dried cranberries, raisins, slivered almonds and hemp seeds (great for adding to any salad, breakfast, side dish hot or cold)
EVOO and black pepper

I cooked 1 cup of quinoa in 2 tbsp of cumin to give it a bit of flavour. Made the kale the base of the salad, added the quinoa and then assembled the rest of the ingredients on top - portions are up to you!

Drizzle with EVOO (extra virgin olive oil), fresh lemon and pepper!

Don't be fooled - there is lots of protein, flavour and healthy greens in this salad!
