I am no food blogger and don't aspire to be one, which is good since my photos are done with a cell phone in my dark kitchen, but I do want to record somewhere delicious recipes when I cook them so I can have a reference to go back to.
Today's dish is a tweak on a recipe I found online. Apparently kale is all the rage these days - even Costco is selling it. Sam's Club may start selling it in 10 years if the trend catches on solidly enough.
Cherry Orange Kale Quinoa Salad
2 cups chopped kale (I used baby since that's what Costco sells)
2 cups cooked quinoa
1/3 cup chopped dried cherries (craisins would probably be really good too)
1/3 cup chopped roasted pistachios
1/2 an orange sliced into sections
zest of one orange
juice of half an orange
2 cloves garlic
1 tsp olive oil
salt and pepper
Mix together the zest, juice, garlic, oil, and salt and pepper. Combine all the chunky ingredients (first five) and toss with the dressing.
