Apologies, both for the dreadful pun and my continuing absence from this blog. No real excuses, just life and general busyness. This revelation of a salad, however, is a pretty good reason for hauling my lazy arse back into the blogosphere.
I realise that kale as a Caesar salad ingredient is not a new phenomenon, and I cannot believe its taken me this long to try it.
This recipe is from my longstanding favourite blog The Art of Doing Stuff. The odd thing has been changed and I’ve seriously pimped it to main course status though. Cheesy, salty and smokey with a good kick of garlic, and you get to eat your greens. This baby ticks all the boxes. Seriously, we have had it every week, sometimes twice, since I first made it. To prove to you how good it is, here’s a text conversation between me and Mr.B yesterday.
So, without further ado, I present to you to my take on the Kale Caesar Salad! (trumpet fanfare).
This salad is super versatile and tasty. We often have it like this, with a runny egg, as a main course, or with a piece of grilled salmon as a side dish. I’ve even used it as a sandwich filling with tinned tuna and mayonnaise. Apart from being unbelievable tasty, another fantastic thing about this salad is that the dressed kale leaves keep in the fridge for two or three days, without going limp, ready to toss into anything at the drop of a hat.
You can thank me later!
