Quinoa Kale Salad with Grapes

On my trip to NYC earlier this year, one thing really struck me: no matter what hip restaurant I went to, they all seemed to have either a kale or a quinoa salad on their menus! It really baffled me how two ingredients had made it to such super-stardom in this fast-paced city.

At the Brooklyn Cookbook Fair I was then told by numerous attendees that New Yorkers have a penchant to embrace superfoods and that they all like to jump on the bandwagon if something’s hip.

Well, ok, so I thought why not create a ‘super hip’ quinoa kale salad for the latest Cactus Food Heroes. The recipe is also available in German and French.
