The BEST Kale Caesar Salad You’ve Ever Had….I Promise

Hi everyone! Today I want to share one of my go-to recipes that I probably make twice a week because I love kale and I love caesar salad. This recipe is another one of my Snap Kitchen inspired recipes (see another one here). I am addicted to the kale caesar at Snap Kitchen, and I think this recipe is pretty close to theirs, if not better. Here’s how you make it:

Ingredients:

One large bunch of Tuscan Kale- center stem removed and chopped

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

8 anchovy filets packed in oil

1 garlic clove- chopped

1 tsp Dijon mustard

3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

1/2 cup finely grated parmesan

salt/pepper to taste

croutons (I make my own gluten free ones)

1/2 cup golden raisins

Directions:

Add the lemon juice, anchovies, garlic, and dijon mustard to a blender and puree until smooth. Next add the olive oil slowly, and blend until you have a creamy dressing. Add half of the parmesan and salt and pepper and mix for just a few seconds. Now your dressing is done. You can make the dressing ahead of time and store it for up to 2 days in the refrigerator. Add the dressing to the kale and toss together. Add the remaining parmesan,  golden raisins, and croutons. That’s it! Enjoy it as a meal or as a side. I love to just eat a large portion by itself for lunch. Try it and let me know what you think.
