Kale Caesar Salad with Roasted Garlic Dressing
- 1 bunch dinosaur or laminate kale
- 1/4 cup coarse fresh breadcrumbs or croutons
- 1 tbsp. olive oil
- 1/4 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese, plus extra for sprinkling over salad (if vegan use nutritional yeast)
- 1/2 cup roasted garlic Caesar dressing
Remove the thick stalks from the center of the kale. Pile the leaves on top of one another and roll together into a cigar. Cut the kale into thin ribbons.
Preheat the oven to 400 F. Toss the breadcrumbs together with the olive oil in a small mixing bowl and spread in an even layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Toast in the oven until golden brown and crisp, about 5 minutes.
In a large mixing bowl, toss the kale together with the dressing. Add the Parmesan cheese and toss again. Divide among four plates, and top with the breadcrumbs, plus a bit more cheese, if you’d like..
