This delicious Honey Lime Kale and Quinoa salad is packed with kale, quinoa, edamame, apples, and pumpkin seeds with the most amazing honey lime dressing.

I love a good kale salad and this one ranks up there as one of my all time favorites all thanks to the drool worthy honey lime dressing. It would taste good on anything, seriously.

When it comes to salads, I tend to favor big, voluminous salads packed with all types of goodies. This one has tons of fresh veggies, apples and dried cranberries for some tartness and sweetness, and quinoa to add some hearty whole grains. Plus the edamame add some protein. In terms of the kale, I tend to prefer dinosaur kale to curly kale, but either would work. You could also use spinach, arugula, or Romaine if kale isn't your thing. Just don't massage it first.
