Quinoa & Kale Fall Salad
The Secret to Serving this Salad
#HostfulHack: Prepare ahead of time. Salads are a simple way to spend less time in the kitchen the day of a dinner party. Prepare this Quinoa and Kale Fall Salad the day before and store in a seal container in the refrigerator.
How to Serve Quinoa & Kale Fall Salad
We love adding different natural elements to our tablescapes. Rather than plating the fall salad into a salad bowl, opt for a wooden decorate bowl (we found ours in the home decor section of Target), place paper towels in the bottom of the bowl and fill with your pre-made salad. Once dinner is complete, simply wipe down the bowl and reuse as decoration on your favorite shelf!
The Perfect Toppings
Want to complete your fall salad with the perfect toppings? Here are some of our favorites to top it off:
- Dried Cranberries
- Sliced Almonds
- Shredded Parmesan Cheese
- Sliced Apples
- Sliced Pears
- Apple Cider Maple Balsamic Vinaigrette
