A homemade dressing made from tangy Greek yogurt keeps the calories low while still letting you indulge. Using kale instead of romaine lends a boost of antioxidants and vitamins A and C, and pairing it with the classic, family-friendly Caesar dressing helps encourage picky eaters to give it a try. Grilling is a fast and easy way to cook shrimp, but you can also stay inside and cook these skewers in a grill pan if you prefer.

Kale Caesar Salad with Shrimp
Kitchen Tip: The secret to delicious kale: Tempted to skip rubbing the kale with lemon? Don't. Doing it wilts and softens the kale, making it silkier in texture and easier to chew. The lemon also takes the edge off the green's bitterness, giving it a touch of sweetness.
