    Kale, quinoa, red capsicum, cucumber, red onion, feta cheese and avocado are served with a homemade Dijon mustard and lemon vinaigrette in this brilliant salad. Steaming the kale removes some of the bitterness and the salad dressing ties all the flavours together beautifully.

    Serves: 4 

    • Salad
    • 110g quinoa
    • 300ml water
    • 1 bunch kale, torn into bite-sized pieces
    • 1/2 avocado, sliced
    • 70g cucumber, chopped
    • 50g red capsicum, chopped
    • 2 tablespoons chopped red onion
    • 1 tablespoon crumbled feta cheese
    • Dressing
    • 60ml olive oil
    • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
    • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

    Preparation:25min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Salad: Bring the quinoa and water to the boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the quinoa is tender, and the water has been absorbed, about 15 to 20 minutes. Set aside to cool.
    2. Place kale in a steamer basket over 2cm of boiling water in a saucepan. Cover saucepan with a lid and steam kale until hot, about 45 seconds, then transfer to a large plate. Top kale with quinoa, avocado, cucumber, red capsicum, red onion and feta cheese.
    3. For the dressing:

    4. Dressing: Whisk olive oil, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, sea salt and black pepper together in a bowl until the oil emulsifies into the dressing.
    5. To Serve: Pour the dressing over the salad to serve.
