Avocado, Kale, and Quinoa Salad

Standard

Oh, how I love avocados, kale, and quinoa!  Combine them and it’s a trifecta for my taste buds.  Salads are so easy and wonderful because anything goes.  And here’s what goes into my avocado, kale, and quinoa salad:

  • 1/2 of an avocado peeled, pitted, diced
  • A bunch of kale, chopped
  • Red quinoa
  • 1/2 Red bell pepper diced
  • Olive oil
  • Sea salt
  • Black ground pepper

Rinse and rinse and rinse the quinoa and prepare per package directions.

While quinoa is simmering, chop kale and saute in olive oil and sea salt.  This makes the kale so delicious!

Combine sauteed kale and diced bell pepper in a bowl. So pretty!  And how cool is this bowl?  Our cousin, Gladys Bulla Cothran, made it.

Mix in quinoa and avocado, mashing the avocado so it coats the other ingredients.
