Get out your cutting board, play some tunes and get ready to be amazed. This salad is a sleep… seemingly basic, however it’s quite tasty and the grain in there makes it completely satiating. Mark my words, it’ll become a staple in your lunch box!

2 cups chopped fresh kale
1/4 cup shaved or shredded Parmesan
1/4 cup golden raisins

1 tablespoon olive oil
- In a medium bowl, combine the romaine, kale, Parmesan, raisins, quinoa (warmed), almonds, and chicken or eggs (if using) and mix well.
