there’s nothing fancy about this easy kale & quinoa salad – it just comes together quickly and is bursting with fall flavors, plant-based proteins, fiber and heart-healthy fats.


  • 2 large handfuls ready-to-eat kale, stems removed
  • 1/2 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1/2 a medium apple, washed, cored & sliced thin (I love Envy, Macintosh or Gala here)
  • 1/2 a medium pear, washed, cored & sliced thin (I love Bartlett or D’Anjou)
  • 2 tablespoons roughly chopped toasted walnuts
  • 12 tablespoons dried cranberries
  • 23 tablespoons feta cheese
  • Salt & pepper, to taste
  • Olive oil & vinegar, or other dressing of choice


  1. Combine all ingredients, toss with dressing & enjoy!
