Kale and Quinoa Salad
KALE and QUINOA SALAD
Cheesecake Factory Copycat Recipe
Makes 4 small servings or 2 large
1 small bunch of kale (about 6 cups when sliced)
1 to 2 cup of red grapes
1 cup cooked quinoa
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 red bell pepper diced
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
juice of one lemon (about 1/4 cup)
1 tablespoon finely minced shallot
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
3 tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper, to taste
1 teaspoon honey or 1 packet of Stevia (if you use Stevia, add slowly and taste)
Cut kale into small thin strips, like you would cabbage, for coleslaw. Slice grapes into halves. Finely dice half a red bell pepper.
In a jar, add the lemon, shallot, oil, sweeter, and salt and pepper, and shake vigorously until well-mixed. I have kept the dressing quite tart as it goes well with the sweetness of the grapes, but you can add more sweetener to suit your own taste.
In a serving bowl, toss kale with salad dressing. Add in the grapes, sunflower seeds, quinoa and red bell pepper. Top with Parmesan cheese and serve.
