If you haven’t already discovered the amazingness that is kale, it’s time to add this powerhouse green to your salad repertoire. Kale is packed with vitamins A, C, and K and minerals like manganese and copper. Plus, it’s high in fiber and low in calories. This kale caesar salad is simple to make and perfect for lunch or dinner. Add in whatever protein you want for a hearty dish! 

If you’ve struggled with preparing kale for salads and find the leaves to be too tough, the key step you may be missing is massaging the leaves. In a large bowl, add chopped kale and lemon juice. Use clean hands and massage for about 3 minutes until the leaves are soft and tender. Add in a pinch of salt, and voila! Your kale is ready to be enjoyed in whatever salad you desire.
