If you’re looking for a simple lunch idea to make this week, look no further! This salmon kale salad is delicious, made with simple ingredients, and takes 30 minutes to assemble.

Don’t have 30 minutes? No problem. This meal is easy to prep for in advance! Just prepare your salmon and quinoa the night before or at the beginning of the week. Then, store them in sealed containers in the fridge for easy access when you’re reading to make your salad.

This salmon-kale salad combo is one of my favorites – the fresh ingredients and textures combine so well. It truly never disappoints!
