Kale, Quinoa and Black Bean Salad
Recipe type: Salad
  • 1 cup cooked and cooled quinoa
  • 2 fresh squeezed limes
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 4 TBSP olive oil
  • 2 TBSP white wine vinegar
  • ½ tsp salt and pepper to taste
  • 2-3 handfuls of fresh kale or other greens
  • 1 15-ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained (about 1½ cups)
  • 2 large chopped carrots
  • 1-2 red or yellow bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 avocado, sliced or cubed (optional)
  1. Mix up the dressing by whisking the lime juice, chili powder, olive oil, white vinegar and salt and pepper together in a small bowl.
  2. Separate the leaves of the kale from the stems and cut them into tiny pieces. I ran mine through my food processor which worked really well.
  3. Chop the carrots (also great in the food processor) and the bell peppers (less awesome) into small pieces.
  4. Add all the ingredients together in a large bowl and mix well.
