    About this recipe: Kale, quinoa, red pepper, cucumber, red onion, feta cheese and avocado are served with a homemade Dijon mustard and lemon vinaigrette in this brilliant salad. Steaming the kale removes some of the bitterness and the salad dressing ties all the flavours together beautifully.

    2. Place kale in a steamer basket over 1 inch of boiling water in a saucepan. Cover saucepan with a lid and steam kale until hot, about 45 seconds; transfer to a large plate. Top kale with quinoa, avocado, cucumber, red pepper, red onion and feta cheese.
    3. For the dressing:

    4. Whisk olive oil, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, sea salt and black pepper together in a bowl until the oil emulsifies into the dressing; pour over the salad.
