Recipe of the Week: Kale Caesar Salad!

Hola Readers!  Keeping up with my "getting healthier" mission, this week's recipe is one of my favorite salads.  To be honest, I love salads.  Caesar salad being my favorite.  Well, this recipe calls for kale.  And I love kale too.  My first taste of kale was in my morning green juices, which is something I'm meaning to get back to doing as well.  Kale is a good source of fiber.  As a matter of fact, it is high in fiber creating the bulk needed to help keep you full for a good amount of time.  Here is another recipe from Clean & Delicious with Dani Spies.

Kale Caesar

  • 1 bunch of kale, stemmed and cut into bite size pieces
  • ½ small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 hardboiled eggs, chopped up
  • 4 oz. firm tofu
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup of water
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 1 tbsp. Parmesan cheese
  • 2 anchovies
  • 1 tbsp. red wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper to taste


In a large bowl combine kale, onions, and hardboiled eggs.  Set aside.
Blend all the ingredients for the dressing in a food processor or blender until smooth and creamy.
Gently toss salad with ½ of the dressing* and enjoy!
Makes 2 hearty salads or 4 small salads.
*Save extra dressing in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
