Grilled Kale Caesar Salad

by | Read time: 1 minute

All hail kale! Your regular Caesar salad needs an upgrade, so swap the romaine for nutrient-rich kale. Give it a flavorful boost by throwing it on the grill instead of eating it raw. And, instead of tossing the greens in foul-smelling fishy and eggy dressing, you’ll massage the pre-grilled leaves with a zesty vegan mixture of olive oil, nutritional yeast and fresh lemon juice. Dig in!
