Roasted Grape, Kale & Kaniwa Salad

Kaniwa is a new grain to hit the markets in the United States in 2015 and like its cousin, quinoa, it’s a seed that’s also been called a “super grain” from South America.  Kaniwa is not only gluten free, but it’s high in protein, fiber and minerals. This nutty seed is paired with sweet roasted grapes, kale and crunchy pecans and drizzled with a spicy citrus vinaigrette for a great salad that’s sure to leave you feeling satisfied.
