Kale and Quinoa Greek Salad

Kale and Quinoa Greek Salad - I love everything about this salad - the crunchy goodness, sweetness from the tomatoes, green peppers and the salad dressing and the saltiness from the feta cheese & kalamata olives.

  • Slice the cucumber in half lengthwise and remove the seeds by running a spoon down the middle. Chop the cucumber into bite sized pieces. Slice the cherry tomatoes, bell pepper & olives. Add these items and the pepperoncini peppers into the salad bowl.
