RECIPE: Easy Delicious Grains and Greens Salad

I recently ordered an entree by this name at Besaw’s on NW 23rd in the PDX, loved the idea, so I hijacked the title from them.  But they used chard instead of kale and tahini sauce instead of humus.  I think mine has a little more zip.  Never woulda’ eaten this 3 years ago. Now I’m diggin’ it.  Hope you do too. (BTW I got most of these ingredients at Trader Joe’s for not much moolah)

1 bag Trader Joe’s kale (~ 7 cups)
1 cup TJ’s organic quinoa
4 heaping Tbsp TJ’s Mediterranean humus
20 grape tomatoes sliced and cooked until mushy
1/4 cup Annie’s lite honey mustard salad dressing
Sea salt and pepper  to taste
3 squirts Sriracha hot sauce (more if you like-a-da-spice)
