Kale and Quinoa Salad w/black beans recipe

I posted this recipe on Facebook and Instagram last night and lots of people want the recipe! This recipe is vegan and also Daniel fast approved. 

1 c. cooked quinoa
1 c. black beans
1/2 bunch kale
1/2 bell pepper (or red pepper)
1/2 jalepeno pepper (no seeds)
1 lime
1/2 lemon
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp crushed garlic
chopped cilantro (didn't measure...prob 1/2 cup?)
red pepper flakes
sea salt

If you haven't already cooked your quinoa, do that first. Same for black beans, unless you're using canned. If using canned black beans I would rinse them well before using them.

Chop up your kale. Then make a dressing in a separate bowl with the lime and lemon juice, olive oil, crushed garlic and seasonings to taste. Mix it well, then pour about half of it on the kale. With your hands, massage the dressing into the kale for about 2 minutes. 

Then add everything else and mix it up well. Pour the rest of the dressing on then mix again. So easy and delicious! 

I had this for BREAKFAST this morning with some low-sodium Triscuits, whih are also Daniel Fast approved.
