Ingredients

Salad

2/3 cup quinoa

1 1/3 cups water

1 bunch kale, torn into bite-sized pieces

1/2 avocado - peeled, pitted, and diced

1/2 cup chopped cucumber

1/3 cup chopped red bell pepper

2 tablespoons chopped red onion

1 tablespoon crumbled feta cheese

Dressing

1/4 cup olive oil

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1 1/2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

3/4 teaspoon sea salt

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Steps

1Bring the quinoa and 1 1/3 cup water to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the quinoa is tender, and the water has been absorbed, about 15 to 20 minutes. Set aside to cool.

3Whisk olive oil, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, sea salt, and black pepper together in a bowl until the oil emulsifies into the dressing; pour over the salad.
