Kale, Quinoa, and Avocado Salad with Lemon Dijon Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2013
This is amaaazzzinnggg!!! The flavor combination in this is brilliant! Avocado and feta and the occasional cool bite of cucumber or spicy red onion; the dijon and lemon is phenomenal! SOOO mouth-watering! Even my kids (four and 1.5 yrs) devoured this. I made a double batch, we were nibbling on it still warm from the quinoa. I DID keep the kale raw, to retain nutrients. I massaged and kneaded the torn up leaves with a bit of salt; and put some of them in a large plastic bag and let my kids fling it around. This is soo soo soooo delicious!!

I made this just as described; cooking for slightly less time because I have an electric oven and it runs a little hot. These were just lovely as is, with the anise!! They DO taste quite licorice-ey, though, so if you have an aversion to the stuff, perhaps cut down on the anise extract or substitute with another flavor. (My whole family loved the anise flavor!) I did follow the advice of another reviewer and oiled my hands to work with the sticky dough. Even my husband, who hardly ever eats baked anything (he's a meat guy) gobbled them up! I am adding 3/4 cup cranberries, some orange zest, and 1 Cup almonds with 1 T almond extract for Christmas!
