Directions

  1. Bring water and quinoa to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until quinoa is tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Drain water and run quinoa under cold water to cool.
  2. Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add kale, cover, and steam until tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Place chopped kale in a bowl and refrigerate until chilled, 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. Mix avocado, tomato, and cucumber together in a bowl; add quinoa and kale. Sprinkle feta cheese over quinoa mixture; add Italian dressing and stir.

This recipe was really tasty. I used baby kale so I could skip the steaming and Kraft Sundried Tomato & Oregano dressing. Delicious!

Excellent! I had to substitute asparagus for the avocado due to allergies, but I'm sure it's amazing as is. Thanks for the recipe! It's a keeper....
