Quinoa Avocado Kale Salad - only takes 5 ingredients to make!

This is probably one of the easiest and most delicious things you can make. It brings 3 of my favorite power foods together: quinoa, avocado and kale. What can be more healthy than that? For dinner, I like to pair this salad with my Miso Glazed Salmon. Dinner is served in 30 minutes or less!

Quinoa Avocado Kale Salad (Clean Recipe)

1 cup cooked quinoa
1 bunch kale, cleaned and chopped
1 avocado, diced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
salt and pepper, to taste

The direction is simple: add kale, olive oil, lemon juice in a bowl, and "massage" the kale for 30 seconds-1 minute. This will help bruise the kale a little bit and turn the leaves slightly darker. Then toss in quinoa, avocado, mix, season and and serve.

If you're prepping this to take for lunch, I'd say cut the avocado in the morning. While a browned and oxidized avocado is still okay to eat, it just tastes so much better when it looks fresh and green!

Readers - I'm still pretty new to using quinoa in my meals. Do you have any favorite go-to quinoa recipes? Please share in the comments below!
