Quinoa Ginger Salad

Serves 12 (caution, may want to halve recipe!!)ginger 1

2 bunches of kale, stemmed and steamed

1.5 c quinoa cooked in 1.75 c broth or water

2 sweet yellow onions, diced small and sautéed in water

3-4 c cooked white beans

2 medium sweet potatoes, cooked and diced

Spicy Ginger dressing

This is a great pot luck dish, isn’t very time consuming to make, and has great appeal thanks to all the great colors and health benefits of the ingredients.  Mix the kale, quinoa, onions, white beans, and sweet potatoes in a large serving dish.  If you have access to a Whole Foods, look for this fabulous spicy ginger dressing in the fresh sushi section (there’s also a non-spicy version).  I dilute a few tablespoons of dressing with a tablespoon or two of water and mix in the salad.  If you don’t have access to a store bought version, I’ve included the ingredients below so you can create a lower fat version.  I’ve been wanting to make an oil free version for years but just haven’t gotten to it yet.
