Kale & Quinoa Salad + Sauvignon Blanc

Looking for a vegetarian delight packed with flavour? Enter the Kale & Quinoa Salad. Leafy kale, roasted butternut squash, slivered almonds, and juicy pomegranates come together in a light vinaigrette for a refreshing and nutritious meal. For meat eaters, you can add chicken for extra protein. And to elevate your dining experience, sip on a glass of Sauvignon Blanc. Its crisp, citrus-flavoured notes and high-acidic finish perfectly complement the salad's vibrant flavours.
