“ Swap out traditional romaine lettuce for nutrient-packed kale in this seasonal caesar salad with a bright, punchy, anchovy-free dressing. Sarah, Recipe Hunter ”
It’s no secret that we’re on kale bandwagon with recipes like this, this, and the oh-so-popular this. It’s packed with nutrients and it’s hearty texture makes it so versatile to use in a number of ways. But sometimes, something as simple as swapping out one green for another, as in this recipe, can make a huge difference that takes a recipe from basic to something special. Instead of traditional romaine lettuce, Sarah uses shredded raw kale, which holds up extraordinarily well to the thicker dressing, and tops the salad with crunchy homemade croutons (a great use for your stale bread). With the punchy (anchovy-free) dressing that has extra lemon and garlic for a tart, zippy bite, this salad will quickly become a new favorite in your home.
