I don’t know about you but I’m always trying to come up with new ways to get dark green leafy vegetables into my families diet. That’s why I was thrilled when I came across this Winter Greens Caesar Salad at my local co-op. It is a hearty salad that is really filling, and surprisingly easy to prepare. Even my husband, who has only met the likes of kale as a rubbery garnish on the side of his plate, thoroughly enjoys this salad. 

I often make a big batch, leave the dressing off, and eat it throughout the week for lunch. Recently a friend of mine made a salad using kale that was very tender. She said after she put the dressing on she massaged the leaves with her hands. That would be a messy affair with this salad dressing, but next time I make it, I’m going to massage the leaves before I put on the dressing, and see if that makes the salad even better.

Although I really like to use my homemade mayonnaise in this salad, if you’re vegan, or just can’t eat eggs, then try it with my Vegan Coconut Milk Mayonnaise and leave out the Parmesan cheese (or substitute with vegan Parmesan cheese or Braggs Nutritional Yeast Flakes).

If you’ve got picky eaters, who won’t touch a leafy green vegetable to save their lives, give my Winter Greens Caesar Salad a try. It’s had many a kale convert! Add some grilled chicken for a filling and healthy meal!
