This is one delicious salad that may seem like a hot mess, but really all comes together in superfood harmony. I absolutely loved it!
1 1/2 cups quinoa (cooked according to package instructions, until al dente, then cooled)
1/2 cup toasted pecans
1/3 bunch basil, chopped
1/3 bunch flat-leaf parsley, chopped
1/3-1/2 cup dried cherries (no sugar added, preferably)
2 celery stalks, chopped
2 carrots, chopped
4 cups kale, stems removed and chopped
1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
drizzle or two of honey, optional
kosher salt and black pepper to taste
Whisk the olive oil, lemon juice, and honey together until blended, or shake together in a squeeze bottle.
Combine the rest of the ingredients in a large serving bowl and toss. Drizzle with the dressing and serve.
