Sensational Salad and Dressing

One bite of this flavor-packed salad and you'll understand why Goodness Me cooking instructor Sandy Pomeroy named it Sensational Salad! A plate or two of this, and you're well on your way to 5-10 servings of vegetables per day. I've tweaked the recipe to suit our taste, but the original came from her.

Sensational Salad

  • 1 cup cauliflower florets, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cucumber, quartered horizontally, then chopped

  • 1/2 carrot, grated
  • 1 cup kale, finely chopped
