Quinoa and Kale Salad with Lemon Dressing

It is no secret that I have a huge love for kale.

I love it in anyway shape, or form. Kale chips might be one of my favorite ways to eat kale, besides just throwing it in a salad and topping it with everything humanly possible!

You can see how good kale is for you by checking out the top 10 health benefits of kale.

What better way to enjoy kale then mixing it with a delicious grain like quinoa. Long time readers know about my unhealthy obsession with quinoa, so we don’t need to get into that again.

But, you could grab a fork and come join me for lunch!
