Curly kale forms the base of this salad, but you could use chard or spinach. To the greens, add a multitude of chopped veggies, such as broccoli, cabbage and carrots. Finish with rich salmon for protein and a drizzle of creamy yogurt dressing to bring it all together.

So fresh tasting and good for you! The Creamy Garlic dressing is my favorite part. It’s saved in my recipes now so I’ll be making it a weekly thing.

I like it but my husband hates the lemon garlic dressing, he says it it is way over done.
