Healthy Kale Caesar Salad

Mmm! This salad is on my top ten “go-to” list when I’m lazy and need quick, healthy nutrition. The bonus is it’s delicious, and I like to play around with the dressing to change the flavours depending on what my mood is 🙂i0000010

The ingredients used are all high in much needed vitamins, minerals and disease-fighting properties. Whenever possible, try to use high-quality, whole or natural ingredients (i.e. stuff that doesn’t sit on the shelf for ages).

Ingredients:

  • Kale (as much as you’d like)
  •  2 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon anchovy paste (found near the tuna fish in the supermarket). You can skip this if fish isn’t right for you.
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice, from one lemon
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard (I like the brand Maille) – use less if too strong
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup vegannaise, (or mayo if you’re into that)
  • One egg yolk
  • 1/4 cup Nutritional Yeast (in place of Parmigiano-Reggiano)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Directions:

  • Wash and shred the kale into bite-size pieces.
  • Massage the kale gently with some olive oil, prior to adding dressing. This will relax the texture a little bit 😉
  • Mix together the 11 ingredients and toss as much as you’d like in the salad. The dressing keeps for about 3-4 days in the fridge so I like to have extra handy.

Enjoy all the nutrition you are about to give your body!

xoxo,

Leigh
