Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving weekend!
Well now that November is just about over, it’s finally time to start decorating for the holidays and planning all the fun festive parties! This was the first year I actually put our tree up BEFORE Thanksgiving because I was just that excited, so December literally can’t come fast enough. I just LOVE the holidays, especially because of all the delicious food, but who says everything has to be unhealthy and full of sugar?! I wanted to share a recipe that would brighten up anyone’s holiday table while still being festive AND healthy! I think this winter kale and quinoa salad makes the perfect healthy holiday side dish that is sweet, crunchy and super easy to make!

I until the end of time hold my dressing in a mason jar plus a screw pinnacle lid which makes it super easy to shake sooner than through! Then when you’re prepared to eat , competently drizzle sundry on zenith – thus painless!
While serving this to a gigantic collection of men, I all the time adore to shove the dressing almost about a half hour or 20 minutes previous serving , spot it the fridge furthermore allow the whole lot the flavors marinate . Then I summit it in addition to further pomegranate seeds , cranberries plus walnuts certainly to class it look appealing. Hey we constantly eat with our eyes , correct?!
Here’s a pleasurable tip: to type this salad however additional festive , attempt gaining super easy candied walnuts by mixing the walnuts a saucepan along furthermore almost about a twosome tablespoons of brown sugar over medium-high hot temperature. As the sugar melts , amalgamation the bananas nonetheless securing certain to coat one another flippantly (about 5 minutes total) at that time spread the extreme on a baking sheet to quiet. Then you may well cleanly jostle each other with the salad !
