  1. In a small pot combine one cup quinoa with 2 cups of salted water and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer over low heat for about 15 minutes, or until all water has been absorbed. Let cool at least slightly before adding to salad.
  2. While the quinoa cooks, remove the stems from the kale. Discard stems and chop the leaves finely, adding them to a large bowl. You may saute the kale in a large skillet if you wish before adding to the bowl. Add shredded nori or furikake and cucumber.
  3. Add the pine nuts and sesame seeds to the kale, nori and cucumbers. Add the avocado last to limit browning.
  4. Add vinegar and lemon juice, and quinoa. Mix well, season to taste, and enjoy!
