Kale Power Salad with Golden Quinoa + Black Beans

Make this salad for a group dinner or as a power lunch for the week ahead. It's a full plant-based meal with Flourist Golden Quinoa, Flourist Black Beans, and pumpkin seeds adding a boost of protein and healthy, complex carbohydrates. Save any extra dressing to enjoy on green salads. 

Kale Power Salad with Golden Quinoa + Black Beans
1 cup dry Flourist Golden Quinoa, cooked according to package directions
1 cup dry Flourist Black Beans, soaked & cooked until tender
1/cup red onion, finely chopped
1 cup toasted pumpkin seeds
1 heaping cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1 cup cilantro leaves
8 cups chopped curly kale, about 2 bunches
2 avocados

Salsa Lime Dressing 
3/4 cup olive oil 
3 tbsp fresh lime juice
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup tomato salsa
2 tbsp pickled jalapeños
1 tbsp pickled jalapeño juice
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp dried cumin 

Blend all dressing ingredients in a high powered blender and set aside. Combine all the salad ingredients except for the kale in a bowl, reserving some pumpkin seeds, tomatoes, and cilantro for garnish. Add dressing, starting with 3/4 of the recipe and mix well. The mixture will be wet.  Add the kale, a large handful at a time, tossing gently with your hands to ensure it is evenly mixed. Add remaining dressing if desired and mix well. Top with cubed ripe avocado and reserved garnishes. 



Could you clarify what the 1/cup red onion is (1/8, 1/4, 1/2).
Thank you.
