  • 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.
