{Kale + Quinoa Salad with Citrus and Soy}

it's  january and there are two things i'm obsessed with right now...  citrus and succulents.  oh and quinoa.  i made up this salad recipe for lunch today and it was just the thing i was craving.  healthy and bright... clean and fresh.  the balance of soy and honey with the miso and ginger = perfection.

{Kale + Quinoa Salad with Citrus and Soy}

1.5- 2 cups Red Quinoa cooked
1/2 bunch scallions, chopped
1 bunch Kale (chopped fine, like cabbage)
5 Clementines, or oranges peeled and chopped

{Miso Dressing}
Red Miso paste ( about 1/4 cup)
2-3 T soy sauce
3 T honey
1/4 cup sesame oil
2-3 T Rice Vinegar
grated fresh ginger (to taste)
2 cloves garlic

combine the cooked red quinoa, scallions, kale, and clementines.  mix dressing ingredients in food processor until creamy and well combined.  taste dressing and adjust as needed.  in a large mixing bowl pour dressing over salad and mix well.

* this is my recipe... i try to do my best to record measurements, but i'm not really a measurements kind of girl.  these are suggestions.  my best advice is to taste it... and adjust as needed.  bon appetit.
