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.

Made one serving of this for dinner- delish and it scales pretty easily. I didn't have mayo so I used more yogurt and a tbsp of EVOO. I definitely overdid the kale so I needed to thin the dressing- I just added more lemon juice. Read More
