Kale & Quinoa Salad

Kale & Quinoa Salad

Makes 1 bowl.
10 minute prep time.

This bowl is the ultimate midday nourishment, with a whopping 10 whole food plant points to feed your gut and boost your energy. Sweet mustard dressing, dense veggies, a variety of toppings, and all the whole-grain fiber to keep you satiated until dinnertime. It’s my go-to when I feel I need a power dose of nutrients.


  • 1/2 cup chopped & massaged kale
  • 1/4 cup chopped cabbage
  • 1 chopped radish
  • 1/4 cup chopped cucumber
  • 1-2 chopped brussels sprouts
  • 1/3 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1/8 cup cooked farro
  • 1 tbsp chopped pecans
  • 1 chopped date
  • 1 tbsp crumbled vegan feta (Violife is my favourite)
  • 1/4 cup tofu bites
  • Sprinkle of dill (dried or fresh)

Honey Mustard Dressing:

  • 1 tbsp. vegan mayo
  • 1 tsp. honey or agave nectar
  • 1/2 tsp. smooth dijon
  • 1/2 tsp. grainy dijon
  • 1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • Salt & pepper, to taste


  1. Whisk together dressing ingredients.
  2. Assemble salad ingredients into a bowl, toss with dressing to coat.

Tip: prep in large batches and store in ready-to-go containers for the week ahead. This salad keeps well for several days, just store the dressing separately.
