I finally found a way to make kale that doesn’t require cooking.  It’s a great salad for a hot summer day.  Make sure that you mix the quinoa with the kale after it has been cooked.

  1. Sounds healthy and delicious. I know I love cooked kale. What’s a quinoa?

  2. Quinoa is a grain. The Quinoa seeds contain essential amino acids like lysine and acceptable quantities of calcium, phosphorus, and iron.
