Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 bunch of kale stemmed and chopped (about 8 cups)
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa cooked according to the package
  • 1 mango cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1 cup halved strawberries or quartered if they are really big
  • 2 tablespoons roasted pumpkin seeds aka pepitas

Instructions

  • In a small bowl or spouted cup, combine olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
  • Place kale in a large bowl and drizzle with the dressing. Using your hands, massage the dressing into the kale for 1-2 minutes. This helps to tenderize the kale.
  • Add in quinoa, mango, strawberries, and pepitas. Gently toss together and then transfer into a serving dish. Enjoy!
