Kale Quinoa Salad

Posted on 1 min read

We are kicking off the new year with a healthy quinoa salad!

Over the holidays we had a lot to eat, from Beef Wellington to chocolate mousse. This Detox Salad is appealing thanks to its flavour, lightness and the many fresh and healthy ingredients!

The Ancient Grain in Quinoa Salad

Kale is currently in season as a winter vegetable and in addition, this variety of cabbage provides a number of nutrients (including a lot of calcium), which is why it’s considered a “superfood”. Quinoa is an ancient grain from South America and is known for its high protein content (compared to other grains). Pomegranate seeds and pumpkin seeds give the salad a special twist with some crunch.

All ingredients in this Detox Salad are fresh and, thanks to their nutrients, super healthy!
