I know what you're thinking - this is not just another kale salad. I made it for a dinner party the other night, and everyone asked me for the recipe! It's super simple.

- 1 tomato, chopped
- 1 carrot, diced
- 1 red or yellow pepper, diced
- 1 bag baby kale
- 1 green onion, chopped
- 1 handful of parsley, chopped
- 2 tablespoon raw pumpkin seeds

Here's what you need for the avocado dressing:
- 1/2 avocado, mashed
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 3-4 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice
- 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar

Here's how to make it:
Slice up tomatoes, green peppers, carrots and green onions. Rinse quinoa and prepare according to package directions. In a large bowl, mix together the vegetables. Add 1-1/2 cups warm quinoa. Mix together all ingredients for avocado dressing, then add it on top of salad. Add salt and pepper to taste.
In a large serving bowl, toss everything together. Serve to your family or guests, and sit back and wait for compliments (and recipe requests)!
