Kale Cumber Salad

Summer is here and salads are back on the menu. This is a variation of the traditional dill cucumber salad. It's a balanced meal - includes protein, healthy fats, lots of alkalizing vegetables and some pseudo grains. The perfect weekday lunch or dinner. And if you're HUNGRY at lunch or dinner, it's perfectly o.k. to throw in some extra legumes or even add some chicken, hemp hearts or chia to this recipe.

Makes 2 servings.
