This colorful side salad is basically your body’s best friend; it boasts countless superfoods (think walnuts, quinoa, kale, olive oil, and chia seeds!), making it jam-packed with fiber, protein, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants while remaining gluten- and dairy-free. Green peas and a touch of honey in the dressing round out the savory salad by offering a bit of sweetness. What’s more, the salad’s crunchy walnuts, curly kale, and soft quinoa make for a textured bite (and then another, and then another…). We love a good mixed greens salad, but this side dish is far more interesting. Can you tell we’re fans?
