Quinoa & Kale Salad

Serves 2 as a main or 4 as a side

1 Cup uncooked Quinoa
3 Stalks of Black Kale
1/2 English Cucumber
1/2 Cup Cashews
1 Avocado
1 Tbsp sesame seeds
1 Tbsp juice from a fresh Lemon
1 Tbsp White Wine Vinegar
Salad dressing to taste*

In a small point combine one cup quinoa with 2 cups of salted water and bring to a boil. Cover, and lower heat, simmering for about 15 minutes, or until all water has been absorbed.

While the quinoa cooks, remove the stems from the kale. Discard and chop the leaves finely, adding them to a large bowl.

Add the cashews and sesame seeds to the kale, and cucumbers. Add the avocado last (as you don’t want it to brown). Halve it, remove peel and pit, and chop into small pieces. Add to the salad along with the vinegar and lemon juice. Once the quinoa has cooked, stir it with a fork and transfer to the fridge to cool.
