Kale, Quinoa & Beet Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette

Kale, Quinoa & Beet Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette

A lot of my recipe inspiration comes from meals I’ve had while out to lunch or dinner. I love taking a delicious unhealthy dish and turning it into a delicious healthy dish. Anyone can do it, it’s just learning how to make the right substitutions. Other times I like to recreate recipes that are already healthy. Less work for me. 😉

This Kale, Quinoa and Beet Salad was originally inspired by a dish I’ve ordered poolside many times in Miami. It’s super light and refreshing, yet hearty enough to fill you up! Plus kale is ridiculously good for you.

I bought a pre-made organic lemon vinaigrette because I am all about convenience. But check out the blog Dinners, Dishes and Desserts for a great homemade version
