Kale Caesar Salad
We had a hunch that kale greens and Caesar dressing could make a happy match, if we could only get the kale to relax (without a massage).
Why This Recipe Works
Kale is notorious for being fibrous and tough. In order to break down the leaves and make them more palatable, we soaked them in a warm water bath. Marinating them in the Caesar dressing in the refrigerator gives the salad time to cool back down and the flavors time to meld together. To balance the strong flavor of kale, our dressing is extra-potent, with a stronger dose of lemon juice and anchovies than is typical.
