A different twist on a classic caesar salad, but oh soooo good. I use chopped kale and I mix it with baby gem lettuce, shredded carrot, lots of fresh shredded Parmesan cheese, either store bought or homemade croutons and my homemade garlicky dressing. This is an eggless dressing so it will keep longer in the fridge. I like to use a really good quality dijon mustard.
One of the most important steps is to make sure that the kale is finely chopped. If you decide to make your own croutons, use stale focaccia, sourdough or ciabatta bread. It's so easy to do. Place your bread on a sheet pan, add a drizzle of olive oil and whatever seasoning you prefer on top of the bread, put under the broiler until toasty (careful not to burn) and once cool, cut or tear into small pieces.
This recipe will become your go to salad that you'll make time and time again.
