Warm Kale and Quinoa Salad

Previously I had made a different version of this kale salad and you can view that here.  I wanted to show you the basic components of my current favourite kale dish that is packed FULL of nutrients and is incredibly filling.  For the sake of those who are counting calories, I will note them down for you but for those who are just into food, use whatever you want and however much!  Just enjoy :)
