for the salad:

  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 2 cups kale finely chopped
  • 1 cup carrot julienned
  • 1/2 cup pistachios chopped
  • 1/2 cup scallions finely sliced
  • 1/2 cup cilantro finely chopped
  • 4 Medjool dates pitted & chopped

for the dressing:


  • In a large bowl, combine all the salad ingredients.
  • Add the dressing ingredients to a mason jar and shake to combine. You can also use a bowl and whisk them together until combined.
  • Pour dressing over the salad and toss until everything is evenly coated.
  • Allow salad it sit for 15 minutes before serving (this helps the kale soften a bit). Enjoy as is or serve with your favorite protein!
