Kale & Quinoa Salad

Hello there, and welcome to my very first blog post. I must say, I had been thinking about starting one for the longest time, and was very hesitant for a lot of reasons. I’m very lucky to have had amazing advice from the online community, who have encouraged me to just go for it!

So, for my very first post, I thought I’d share this yummy, fresh Kale and Quinoa salad!
