    Wistaria's Note:

    From I'm posting it here to have it handy. I absolutely love the flavors in this salad. Plenty of delicious umami flavor! This is a great way to use kale from my local CSA and have a healthy meal too! I saute the kale, omit the pine nuts and salad dressing, and add more rice vinegar. This recipe is probably pretty forgiving of substitutions.

    1. 1
      In a small pot combine one cup quinoa with 2 cups of salted water and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer over low heat for about 15 minutes, or until all water has been absorbed. Let cool at least slightly before adding to salad.
    2. 2
      While the quinoa cooks, remove the stems from the kale. Discard stems and chop the leaves finely, adding them to a large bowl. You may saute the kale in a large skillet if you wish before adding to the bowl. Add shredded nori or furikake and cucumber.
    3. 3
      Add the pine nuts and sesame seeds to the kale, nori and cucumbers. Add the avocado last to limit browning.
    4. 4
      Add vinegar and lemon juice, and quinoa. Mix well, season to taste, and enjoy!

      Very good recipe. I substituted raw almonds (crushed) for the pine nuts and per GM's suggestion I sautéed the kale and did not use the dressing. Next time I will omit the nori. Added red pepper flakes to the kale.
