Creamy Cauliflower Salad with Kale

You can add kale to almost anything to give it a nutritional boost. I added kale to this creamy cauliflower salad and it adds crunch and color. I do use a little real mayo for the dressing, but cut down the calories and fat with a dab of Greek yogurt (or sour cream) and a tablespoon of olive oil.

You can reduce calories in recipes by replacing some of the mayonnaise with Greek yogurt of sour cream. Add a dash of olive oil for texture and flavor.

Kale can be added to soups, salad, sandwiches and casseroles for a nutritional boost. Adding kale to main and side dishes is a good way to increase your daily intake of vegetables.
