Ingredients

For the salad

  • 1 bunch of kale chopped
  • 4 cups spinach chopped
  • 4 to matoes diced
  • 1 red onion diced
  • 2 green onions
  • 3 T basil chopped
  • 1 pomegranate seeded
  • 1 1/2 cups quinoa cooked
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • salt and pepper to taste

For the dressing

  • 1 pear peeled and cut into cubes
  • 2 cloves garlic chopped
  • 1 T dijon mustard
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup EVOO
  • 1/3 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1 T sugar
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Cook quinoa according to package with the chicken broth instead of water and set aside to cool. Toss together the kale and spinach along with the tomato and onion.
  2. While the quinoa is cooling off still you can make the dressing. Using a blender (I used Nutribullet) blend all ingredients together until smooth.
  3. Toss the cooled quinoa in with the leafy greens and place remaining ingredients on top. You may toss with the dressing or serve on the side! Enjoy 🙂
