Kale Caesar Salad

Caesar salad has always been a favorite of mine. It’s a delicious option for your side, a fulfilling option as your meal and it’s always a crowd pleaser. One night I ordered this salad while out with friends, but the lettuce base was Kale… let’s just say this was a game changer. A couple of weeks later I decided I had to replicate this mouth watering salad, so I did! It’s so easy, healthy and pairs well with grilled chicken, shrimp, salmon, or protein of your choice.

Kale Caesar Salad Ingredients:

  • 6-8 cups chopped fresh kale (I buy the bagged kale – remove any stems)
  • 1-2 cups of your favorite or homemade croutons
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Caesar Dressing (see recipe below)

Caesar Dressing Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup freshly-grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3–4 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1–2 teaspoons anchovy paste, to taste
  • 2 teaspoons worcestershire sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • pinch of black pepper
  • 3–4 tablespoons milk

How to Make Kale Caesar Salad:

  1. Add all ingredients for the caesar dressing, except milk, to a small mixing bowl. Stir together until combined and smooth.
  2. Add in one tablespoon at a time of milk to caesar dressing, until your desired consistency is met.
  3. In a large bowl, add the kale, croutons, Parmesan, and caesar dressing. Toss until combined and serve immediately.
