You may be able to get away with using only 1/4 cup of dressing. It was difficult to tell when I poured it on the frozen veggies. I thought the dressing might pool in the bottom of the bowl, but it clings to the veggies so I couldn't get away with counting only half the dressing. Try using less and add more the next day if needed. This might also be good with a little slivered red onion, but count the extra carbs. You could make this suitable for induction by using a vegetable blend with just cauliflower and broccoli. The carb count would be about the same.
