Candice’s Dandelion Greens & Quinoa Salad

1 cup dandelion greens, finely chopped
2 cups cooked quinoa
1 8 oz leftover salmon fillet, or marinated tofu
1 shallot, thinly slices
1 cup roasted or grilled sweet corn, shaved off the cob
2 tablespoons fresh mint leaves, stems removed

Dressing:
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon low-sodium Tamari (soy sauce)
1 teaspoon curry powder
Juice of 1 lime
Touch of honey (1 tablespoon-ish)

In a large mixing bowl, add in the dressing ingredients. Whisk well to combine. Add in the cooked quinoa, dandelion greens, shallots, corn, and mint. Crumble in the salmon or tofu. Toss well in the dressing to combine, add a splash more Tamari soy sauce or sea salt as needed to taste.

Recommended with a bright green dandelion greens smoothie!
