Kale Quinoa Peach Salad

I was recently in Vancouver, Canada, and while there, I had the most amazing Kale-Quinoa salad. It was so light and refreshing, and I enjoyed it so much that I wanted to recreate it and add my own twist to it.

Add any protein you like to this salad, such as grilled chicken or seared Tuna.
