Quinoa

Vinaigrette

Salad

  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 cups finely chopped kale
  • 3 cups finely chopped fresh spinach
  • 1/2 cup walnuts

Here's how to make it:

  1. Toast the walnuts in a dry skillet until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Set aside.
  2. Whisk together the vinaigrette ingredients. Season with salt and pepper. Add the onions and set aside.
  3. Put the quinoa, water and a little salt into a saucepot. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and cook, partially covered, until quinoa pops open and is tender, about 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and add the dried cherries. Cover and set aside.
