This Cranberry Kale Quinoa Salad with Candied Pecans and Feta is the perfect Fall salad! Tender kale, tart cranberries, creamy feta, and nutty quinoa are tossed in a super simple vinaigrette and topped with buttery homemade candied pecans.
Sometimes you just need a big green superfood salad in your face.
Especially when the holiday season is about to hit aaaaaaaand you have a cute party dress that needs to fit less like a sausage casing and more like a glove. Yes I’m 110% talking from experience here. It’s only October already have several shindigs scheduled this year PLUS our annual USMC Birthday Ball and ohmygosh guys, I need to get my act together!
We’ll still be partaking in our regularly scheduled cheesiness all season long but mama needs some salad in her face too! #balance
Anyways! Back to the salad! It’s super duper healthy but thanks to a kiss of sweetness from the cranberries and pecans, it’s still totally fun and beyond flavorful! My goal is to make salads that people actually want to eat. Love to eat. Need to eat.
I absolutely positively want/love/need this salad….
