Thai Quinoa & Kale Salad

Quinoa Kale Thai Salad


Check out the colors in our Thai Quinoa & Kale Salad.  We love this one and we think you will too.  All you need to do is chop up the fresh vegetables, add some quinoa then pour on the creamy peanut dressing.  For the dressing we used natural peanut butter which has no added sugars. This dish is vegan and  gluten free.  Try this salad with our black beans or any of our other proteins recipes.
