This delicious and nutrient dense Kale Caesar Salad is a twist on a classic salad with grilled kale, grilled shrimp, Parmesan shavings and homemade Caesar dressing ( NO RAW EGG, NO FISH SAUCE). It can be used as a side dish or as sandwich filling. Healthy & delicious salad that won't disappoint you.
When we starting trying to eat healthier meals, salads became a regular thing for us. Sometimes we eat salad as a side dish and sometimes we have it as a main dish. Whether it is for family meal, barbecue, picnic, dinner party, or a solo dish - this delicious Kale salad always fits the bill. The dressing is made to go along with it and just elevates it amazingly.
I suggest that you make the dressing first, since you can make it and refrigerate it quite a while to be served later. It’s a very easy one-bowl mix with ingredients that you probably already have.
If you aren’t use to Kale, you are in for a treat. Some people have a rough time with Kale at first due to the heavier texture. In this recipe I use baby kale which avoids most of that problem. When you add the shrimp it brings a sweet flavor to mix with the baby Kale and you’ll probably be a fan for life.
KALE HEALTH BENEFITS
The other thing that makes this particular salad and dressing a common one for me is the extra health benefits. Besides the protein and heart-health benefits of the shrimp, the kale is the main component in the salad. Kale is low calorie and has no fat. It's high in fiber which we know promotes digestion. Kale has more iron than beef which helps reduce the chances of anemia and fatigue. The high levels of vitamin K helps protect against cancers and can support brain health.
In other words, it’s more than flavorful to eat delicious but also nutritious foods like this Kale salad with the garlic, oil and dairy based dressing. Foods like this can help you expand your palate and introduce new foods that will make you feel better. This salad/dressing combo will give you enough protein to fuel you for a workout. Eating more fresh foods made from scratch aren't as hard as most people think, but these clean and pure ingredients will improve your body inside and out!Print
