My sister is the weirdest cook ever. She digs through cupboards and drawers and pulls out the most random seeming things. She combines whatever she finds and always end up making something that may not look beautiful but is always tasty.
While I was at work the other day, she found some old apples, a bunch of kale, garlic, walnuts, and cranberries from Christmas. Using her resourcefulness and a soecial kind of magic-she created this amazing salad.
This salad is full of power foods: kale, walnuts, quinoa, apples, cranberries, olive oil, honey. You can actually feel yourself getting healthier with each bite. And, you want to keep eating it because it tastes great. Its the perfect combination of sweet and savory, crunchy and tender.
We served it as a side with dinner of beans and rice and I took a big bowl of it to work the next day. Suggest topping it with goat cheese to add one more level of flavor.
