Looking for a quick and tasty salad recipe? This Kale Caesar salad is perfect for days when you’ve only got 10 minutes to spare, but still want a delicious lunch. If you love caesar salad then you’ve got to try this simple recipe!
Even if you think that you don’t love kale, you will love it in this salad recipe. The secret is using Lacinato kale instead of crunchy kale; the ribbons almost melt into the salad dressing and remove any bitter flavor that you may think kale has. Remove the tough center stems, then roll the kale up into a tight cylinder. Then, thinly slice from one end to create thin ribbons.
Right before serving, add the dressing and toss well; this helps to break down the cell walls, creating a more tender green salad. You’ll save both time and energy by using Litehouse’s creamy Caesar dressing. A robust Caesar dressing full of garlic, parmesan, and just the right touch of anchovy makes this the perfect necessity to all Caesar salads. Tossed with romaine and kale for the perfect balance of crunchy and creamy; it’s no wonder this has become our go-to salad lately.
I’m a big believer that all Caesaers need croutons, but sometimes you want a healthier crunch. That’s where Harvest Snaps' Salad Toppers come in! Featuring farm-direct peas as their very first ingredient, these are an amazing addition to your favorite soups and salads. The garlic butter version adds just the right amount of flavor to your salad with the classic combination of garlic and butter— it’s perfect in this Caesar salad!
I know you are going to love this Kale Caesar salad as much as we do. Enjoy it as a simple lunch or pair with a soup or sandwich for a heartier lunch or dinner.
