Author Notes: Classic chunky Greek salad vegetables and feta combined with leafy kale and a lemony vinaigrette. Between the crunchy fresh veggies, creamy cheese, and savory cooked quinoa, the multitude of flavors will make you forget you are enjoying that famous almighty healthy kale. Megan Peck Cooks
