Kale Salad with Red Quinoa and Carrots
You'll win over converts with this reinvention of the ubiquitous healthy salad. It starts with red quinoa, which provides a nutty crunch; then there are diagonally sliced carrot coins (they're a bit larger than circles and help make the plate more eye-catching); and baby-kale leaves, which are more tender than the regular-size. You toss the leaves in a pomegranate-molasses-sherry vinegar dressing, for a bit of sweetness; and finally, sprinkle on hefty doses of crumbled goat cheese and toasted, sliced almonds.
