  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 2 cups kale
  • 1 clove crushed garlic
  • 3 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tbsp. sunflower seeds
  • 3 tbsp. slivered almonds
  • 3 tbsp. dried cranberries
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Place kale in the bottom of a large bowl and add warm quinoa on top (this will wilt the kale just a bit).
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together garlic, vinegar, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Pour dressing over quinoa and kale mixture and combine well.
  • Sprinkle in the sunflower seeds, almonds, and cranberries. Gently toss. Serve and enjoy!
