This kimchi salad contains fiber-rich kale and Napa cabbage. Toss in some cholesterol-lowering edamame and mildly sweet red onions, which can help boost heart health. Quinoa gives the salad substance and a full spectrum of essential amino acids, which are crucial for healthy cell production. Finish with a drizzle of nutty sesame oil, which can help lower blood sugar.
