🌿 ✨ KALE, QUINOA & RADISH SALAD ✨ 🌿⁠

It’s #HealthyEatingWeek and as know, we love a nutritious #MeatFree dish that also helps your skin glow with a boost of collagen!⁠

This kale, quinoa, and radish salad is a powerhouse of collagen-boosting ingredients! Along with vitamin C-rich kale and lemon juice, this salad features a half cup of nutrient-dense quinoa. When it comes to collagen-boosting minerals, one cup of cooked quinoa offers 2 milligrams of zinc!⁠

Why not try it out for your dinner this evening? ⁠

✨ INGREDIENTS ✨⁠

1/2 cup quinoa, uncooked⁠
3/4 cup water⁠
1 1/2 teaspoons salt⁠
5 cups baby kale⁠
1 1/2 cups thinly sliced radishes⁠
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds⁠
3 tablespoons olive oil⁠
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice⁠
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard⁠
1/2 teaspoon pepper⁠


✨ PREPARATION✨ ⁠

🌿 In a small pot over high heat, combine the quinoa, water, and 1/2 teaspoon salt and bring to a boil. Place the lid on, reduce the heat, and allow to simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow quinoa to sit for several minutes before fluffing with a fork. Set aside to cool.⁠

🌿 In a large serving bowl, combine the baby kale, radishes, pumpkin seeds, and quinoa and toss to combine.⁠

🌿 In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, mustard, remaining 1 teaspoon salt, and pepper. Dress the salad and toss again.⁠

🌿 This salad is best served the same day unless you choose to make it with heartier kale like Black or Tuscan, which has a much stronger leaf and won’t break down as easily when dressed. If using, make sure to use a large knife to remove the thick, bony spines from each leaf before cutting or tearing them into bite-sized pieces.⁠
