Nothing like a healthy dinner doable in under 30 minutes! Leave it to our HR Manager and in-house mother of three, Merina, to stir up the yummiest organic kale-quinoa salad even the teens will eat! This simple dressing is packed with juicy flavour without the heavy fats normally seen on salads these days. Most important ingredient Merina adds is of course "a dash of love".
Bunch of organic green kale chopped to bite size
Organic cherry tomatoes sliced in half (as many as you want)
2 organic avocados
1/2 organic green cabbage
2 cups sprouted quinoa (ready to eat) or cooked
1 clove organic garlic
Himalayan sea salt to taste
Organic black pepper to taste
Organic cold-pressed olive oil
Juice of 1 organic lemon
Dash of love.
Take sprouted or cooked quinoa place in bowl, add cabbage and kale and one avocado mix until the avocado is well blended, add fresh squeezed lemon juice, garlic, Himalayan salt, and pepper.
Fold in cut up cherry tomatoes and other avocado that has been chopped into bite size portions. Mix in the dash of love and serve
Option: Add spice heaven (buy it at our Health & Wellness Center) to give the salad a bit of spicy kick!
