Mediterranean Kale & Quinoa Salad

This is for all the hummus lovers out there!!!  If you’re wanting something savory with tons of jam packed nutrients, this is the recipe for you.  My family absolutely loves this salad, especially my husband, he’s always bugging me to make it for him.  This one is great because you can store it in the freezer and use on those busy days where dinner is the last thing on your list.

It’s also a great dish to take to parties or potlucks, as a side salad or even a filling for lettuce wraps.  You can even get a bit creative and use this for stuffed bell peppers, yum!  

This recipe is filling and oh so delicious!  I absolutely LOVE this one and if you are a fan of hummus, then you will too.  Give it a try and share with your family & friends!
