Kale and quinoa - the best salad!

okay - we had a family party over Christmas where my hubby needed to take a salad.  Since I was supposed to bring desert, we traded.  ;)  He'd made all the Christmas candy that we still had left overs, and so I made a yummy kale quinoa salad that ended up being a hit.  (at least by the adults.)
Unfortunately I didn't get a photo taken of it...so just imagine bright green interspersed with little quinoa grains, onion and nuts.  ;)

But you don't have to imagine how it tastes!  So, here's the recipe.  Enjoy!
