Kale Caesar Salad Greek Yogurt Dressing – Kale Salad recipe made with a creamy Greek Yogurt Caesar Dressings. Healthier, lighter, fewer calories, lots of flavor. Homemade croutons, perfect salad all year round.
I love salad, I just don’t always love salad at home. Especially kale, it was always too crunchy or crisp for me. Kale chips = totally my jam. Kale in my smoothie = A-ok. Kale salad = blah.
Until now. Oh yeah! I finally figured out the secret to amazing kale salad at home. Want to hear the deets? I bet you do. Keep scrolling.
Here’s the secret: Rinse and spin the kale dry. Pour a tiny bit of oil over the kale. I use an extra light virgin olive oil. Massage the kale with your (clean) hands. Just rubbing it softly between your fingers. Sprinkle with a smidge of sea salt. That’s it! Yum and ready for toppings.
Seriously, this method has changed my perspective on kale salad. I now really enjoy it at home.
Second best thing, low cal Caesar dressing. I’ve been a long time fan of Caesar salad but am hardly a fan of all the calories. This stuff is made with Greek yogurt for less fat, less calories and just as tasty as the original. Give it a try, I think you’ll be surprised at just how good it is.
