  • 8 cups shredded kale any kind works
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon anchovy paste
  • 1 clove garlic grated
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the Caesar dressing (lemon juice through Dijon mustard.)
  • Add kale and massage until tender, about 45-60 seconds.
  • Check for seasoning and add salt and pepper to taste. 


Note: you're welcome to use less lemon juice but I prefer mine on the tangier side as the acid helps break down the hearty kale. Additionally, if you're not concerned with calories, feel free to add more olive oil. 

What can I substitute anchovy paste with?

If you're not a fan of anchovies you can try substituting roasted sesame tahini instead.
