Thanksgiving Kale Salad (Kale & Quinoa)

Good anytime, the cranberries and pumpkin seeds in this dish will brighten up your Thanksgiving table. The sterols and zinc in the pumpkin seeds help your immune system for the cold winter ahead. The earthy sweetness of the kale is set off nicely by the nutty flavour of the quinoa. Use both red and white quinoa for a nice colour variation. Source: Chatelaine
