INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 1.2 lbs organic chicken breasts, about 4 pieces
  • 8 cups chopped kale, washed
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 long Italian cucumber, peeled and chopped
  • 1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes
  • 2 Tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • sliced almonds

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Cook quinoa according to package instructions.
  • While quinoa is cooking, heat oil in a skillet and cook chicken breasts for about couple of minutes on each side. Slice each chicken breast.
  • Mix kale, olive oil, and salt in a large bowl. Massage kale with your hands for a couple of minutes, until kale leaves are tender. (The kale will turn a brighter green color.)

  • Toss salad ingredients and serve on plates. Top with sliced chicken breasts, sliced almonds, and optional crumbled feta cheese.
