One of my favourite things about living here in Toronto has been getting to know my neighbourhood. I’m told it’s an up-and-coming area, and so far, it seems perfect for me. It’s small enough to feel very familiar already, but also big enough that it has every type of restaurant imaginable, cute boutiques, at least a dozen coffee shops and – one of my favourites – an organic grocery store! I’ve been loving the freedom of picking up fresh produce any time of day, and it’s exactly where I picked up the ingredients for this hearty salad after seeing it on denj’s blog. It’s delicious and makes the perfect lunch!
2 cups fresh chopped kale
1.5 cup cooked quinoa
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1/4 cup chopped almonds
Toss with a drizzle of olive oil, mix and serve!
