Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup prepared quinoa
  • 1 cup hand-torn kale
  • 1/2 cup strawberries, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons bacon, pan-grilled + chopped
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder

Preparation

  • 1 Prepare the quinoa according to the package instructions.
  • 2 Meanwhile, pan-grill the bacon over medium heat for 2 minutes/side, set aside. I like to blot it with a paper towel to remove excess grease.

  • 4 Place the kale on a plate with the strawberries, + bacon, then top with the dressing + enjoy!
