Caesar salad is traditionally made with crisp dark leaved Romaine lettuce. Kale has this crisp quality too, making it an excellent vehicle for a crunchy kale caesar salad. And let’s not forget all the additional phytonutrients that this tasty vegetable in the cancer fighting cruciferous family brings to your plate too. All hail Kale Caesar Salad!
1. In a large salad bowl toss the kale with the dressing until well coated. Taste for seasonings. Top with croutons and Parmesan cheese.
