Quinoa, a grain that is high in protein and minerals, is paired with two types of seeds: sesame (tahini) and sunflower. Kale, a great source of vitamins, adds flavor and color. This salad is perfect as a side dish or main course.

Combine quinoa, broth and a pinch of salt in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce the heat to simmer. Cook, without stirring, until all liquid is absorbed, about 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to sit, covered, for 10 additional minutes. Fluff grains with a fork.

Combine tahini, olive oil, vinegar, sugar, hot sauce, garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Stir in kale; gently mix with a wooden spoon or massage with your hands so that kale breaks down. Add onions, sunflower seeds, parsley and reserved quinoa; mix to combine.


Substitute chicken stock for vegetable stock and honey for sugar, for a non-vegan option.

Are you able to make this

Are you able to make this salad and have the leftovers for lunch the next day or will it get wilty.

RE: Are you able to make this


Thanks for your question.

I consulted with one of our PCC Cooks and she thinks the salad would just be better the next day! It would give the dish time to absorb all the flavors and make the kale nice and tender.

Thanks again,
