My Favorite Simple Salad

TBH – salads were never my favorite thing to eat and I never found it very exciting to eat salads… UNTIL THIS ONE.

The recipe is embarrassingly easy to make and I promise it tastes a lot better than it sounds (if you don’t already think it sounds amazing). It’s one of those dishes that you can pretty much throw in what you have but I will say that I stick with at least beans and quinoa every time. The beans give the salad some substance and the quinoa really helps to hold the flavor.


  • Kale
  • Black beans
  • Garbanzo beans aka. chickpeas
  • Quinoa
  • Red onion
  • Cucumber (optional)
  • Avocado (optional)
  • Tofu (optional)
  • Olive Oil
  • White Balsamic Vinegar from Modena
  • Salt & Pepper


  • Grab a large bowl to mix.
  • I recommend eating this with a spoon.
