    This salad is a perfect salad to make when you are having a crowd, I often bring this when I’m invited to a pot luck dinner party. It is healthy, filling and CLEAN!

    Step ONE
    Rinse quinoa in a strainer, put into a small sauce pan with 1 1/2 cups water and 1 tsp salt, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer covered for 15 minutes, fluff with a fork and let cool with lid off. When the quinoa is cooled carry on with step 2.

    Step TWO
    In a large mixing bowl mix together cooled quinoa, kale, chives, cilantro, dill, mint, carrot, asparagus, gogi berries, and broccoli.

    Step THREE
    To Make Dressing: combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
