Meatless Monday: Skinny Kale Caesar Salad

Caesar salads are one of my indulgences when I eat out because it is one recipe that I don’t make at home.  I finally broke down and tried a kale Caesar salad at home.  I realized how easy and tasty it is and will be making Caesar salads very often now.  This recipe is inspired by Oh She Glows and uses a skinny Caesar dressing, made with Greek yogurt.  I believe if you did a blind taste test, you would not be able to tell the difference between the skinny and regular dressings.  Give this recipe a try if you love Caesar salads!

8 Cups Chopped Dinosaur Kale
