Kale, White Bean, Avocado Quinoa Salad


I was inspired to create a hearty salad for lunch after shopping at the market and finding so many great ingredients one day. I love putting quinoa in my salads for extra protein and pizazz!

Further Food Commentary:

What a healthful salad! This salad would make a great meal for a vegan or a meat eater. The quinoa, beans, and almonds provide some protein, and the avocado and sesame oil provide some healthy fats. Kale is chockfull of vitamins and minerals, including iron, which is not very bioavailable in other vegetable sources.
