Kale and Quinoa Salad with Parmesan

My sister made this salad over fourth of July weekend and it has been one of the few times that I actually liked kale. I keep trying to convince myself that I enjoy kale, but usually force myself to eat it and remind myself that it's healthy. This salad was actually delicious and gave me faith in kale again. Though I will probably not be adding kale to my usual rotation of foods, this recipe is a great way to sneak it in and stock up on vitamins.

The original recipe called for ricotta salata, but we used Parmesan. We also served extra grated Parmesan at the dinner table for anyone who wanted more (Which of course I did). If you're skeptical about kale, give this salad a try. And if you're still not convinced, the cheese really makes a huge difference too.

Seven Layer Dip

I absolutely love 7 layer dip, but I had never tried making it at home. It's actually pretty easy to make and has been a hit every time it is served. The dip needs to be made the same day you serve it, but since it's easy to make it shouldn't be a problem. Technically, the dip does last overnight, but the guacamole will brown in some places and the tomatoes and salsa will release some water. I'd eat the leftovers myself but wouldn't serve them to guests.
