1) Cook 1/2 cup quinoa per package directions.
2) While quinoa is cooking, add all the dressing ingredients together in a jar and shake vigorously.
3) Fold kale in half lengthwise along the stem. Tear kale leaves off the stem. Stack leaves on top of each other and thinly chop kale. Add shredded kale to a large bowl. Toss dressing with kale and massage the dressing into the kale for a couple of minutes.
4) Add remaining salad ingredients and combine. Garnish salad with thin strips of lemon peel sweetened with raw honey or maple syrup and roasted in the oven until crisp and slightly browned (optional). Enjoy!
