Some time ago Sarah gave me a box full of hand-written vegan recipes from some of her favorite cookbooks.

Lemon Garlic Kale Quinoa Salad serves up as a main dish perfect at the end of winter when stews and soups are starting to get old. We eat it from now through summer, switching out sides of sliced pears and steamed Brussels sprouts (wintered over like kale, and still tasty) for strawberries and asparagus come late spring/early summer.
