Food Friday: The Captain’s Top Secret Kale Caesar Salad

kalecaesarsalad

I’ve said before that everyone should have some secrets…. and this is DEFINITELY one of Justin’s!! Well, it was until right now at least haha! I have been holding back on leaking Justin’s SUPER AMAZING TOP SECRET recipe for over a year now, teasing my friends and family at multiple dinner parties of course. But today is the day people!! And since kale is currently sprouting in gardens all over, I think it’s just the perfect time.

I cannot stress enough how much of a tangy bouncy party this is in your mouth – you will DIE! Pair it with a thick-cut juicy steak and you have my and Justin’s absolute favourite Friday night meal – the flavours together are mind blowing!! It maybe, just maybe, was how Justin won me over in the first place 😉

Enjoy!!!

Justin’s fantastic awesome kale Caesar salad!

TOP SECRET DRESSING INGREDIENTS.

Makes 2-3 servings

1/4 cup – olive oil

1 tbsp – white wine vinegar

2 tsp – dijon mustard

2 tsp – anchovy paste

1/2 tsp – Worcestershire

2 cloves garlic minced

Salt & Pepper

2 tbsp – grated parm

2 tbsp – Miracle Whip

1 full lemon squeezed

 

TOP SECRET OTHER INGREDIENTS.

Kale – this NEEDS to be on kale!

Croutons

B.A.C.O.N!!

MORE Parmesan Cheese

 

DIRECTIONS

For the dressing – mix and shake all liquid ingredients (including anchovy paste and garlic). Once all liquids are mixed add S&P, grated parm and mayo. I add the lemon juice and a tinch more vinegar at the very end so I can control the citrusy taste I want and extra added volume.

For the bacon – get the good UNCUT stuff and cut it into cubes and fry for quick juicy bacon bits.

For the croutons – take a loaf of uncut sourdough, rip it into tiny pieces (so much more rustic this way), toss in a bit of olive oil salt and pepper and bake until brown.

Serve it allllll together, top with a generous dose of Parmesan cheese, and you’ve got yourself YUM YUM MIND BLOWING YUUUUUMMMM!

The cat is officially outta the bag…
