I had a salad at Whole Foods yesterday on Glades Rd in Fl. Kale with apples, was a little sweet, slight amount of hot pepper. DELICIOUS. Can I get the recipe, I live in Port St Lucie Fl, I did not find it in your recipe section.

In the summer i like to make a little extra protein and/or vegetables for dinner. I then use the leftovers for a salad the following day. I can either have it for lunch or for dinner.

@LORETTA - I was unable to find this recipe on our website which probably means it was created by one of our awesome in-house chefs. Check with the store directly, if they have a recipe they'll be happy to share it!

I always made quinoa and it use to fluff up nice after I put it in a bowl to cool. The last couple of times I made the same recipe I always make, the quinoa did not fluff up, it was sticky and globby. What happened?

@MARY LOU - I would imagine this was an issue with the amount of water or maybe the pot you were using. If you need a basic recipe to compare to the one you were using, here is a great option: http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipe/learn-cook-quinoa.
