Kale and Quinoa Salad

Kale and Quinoa Salad
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 10 leaves kale, cut into small pieces
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground sea salt
  • 1 cup pecans
  • 1 cup currants
  • 3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese


  1. Bring water to a boil in a saucepan. Stir quinoa into the boiling water, reduce heat to medium-low, place cover on the saucepan, and cook until water absorbs into the quinoa, about 12 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat and let rest covered for 5 minutes. Remove cover and allow quinoa to cool completely.
  2. Put kale in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Whisk olive oil, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, garlic, pepper, and salt together in a bowl until oil emulsifies into the mixture; drizzle over kale. Add cooled quinoa, pecans, currants, and feta cheese to the dressed kale and toss to incorporate.
