Healthy Power Salad Recipe: This Quinoa Salad Recipe From Chef Michael Symon Is Fuel for the Body

After flipping through Michael Symon's cookbook, Fix It With Food, I knew the Power Salad would be the first recipe on my list to make. This amazing quinoa, kale and spinach salad recipe is full of flavor, textures and healthy ingredients. You've gotta try it!

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Servings: 6

Ingredients

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.
  4. In a large bowl, combine the onions and vinaigrette, quinoa, kale, spinach and walnuts. Season with salt and pepper, if needed. Toss and serve.
