Sweet Kale Salad with Elderberry Yoghurt Dressing

I was recently gifted a bottle of Vitalite Sureau 100% pure Elderberry Juice.…  Little did I know the Elderberry is an antioxidant powerhouse!  This little berry has a very high ORAC score (oxygen radical absorbance capacity) – twice as much as blueberry and cranberry!

Enjoy!
