Roasted Cauliflower Kale Salad

Do you love salads? Salads for me right after soup are the most favorite dishes. Love them plain, with surprises with meat or without. I am always experimenting when it comes to salads. They are perfect food on the go and super healthy. Today I like to show you how I make kale salad with roasted cauliflower. This salad was inspired by my favorite Chopt Restaurant where you can experiment with your favorites. It is time to write all up for you and hopefully my kids. Healthy way to eat
