1 bunch kale, torn into pieces


1 tablespoon pomegranate balsamic vinegar


1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil


2 tablespoons walnut pieces


2 dried figs, cut into small pieces


1 oz. goat cheese


1/3 cup quinoa, cooked


Directions


How (your directions):


Place kale pieces into a large bowl.  Drizzle with balsamic vinegar and olive oil.  Massage the kale for 2-3 minutes.  Tip: Massaging kale allows it to become more tender and slightly sweeter!

Enjoy immediately or the next day!


Why (the science):  Quinoa is a complete protein, making it a great replacement for brown rice and other starches!
