1. Massaged Kale Caesar Salad
You massage your back, but what about your vegetables? When it comes to kale, which is a tough, bitter vegetable when consumed raw, you need to treat the leaves properly in order to create a dish that will taste great and be easy to digest. Enter the quick veggie rubdown. This special treatment transforms the texture and flavor of the leafy green veggie. Simply pour a little olive oil onto the raw leaves, and literally massage them for a few minutes until you see the leaves turn into a shiny, deep green color. Trust us, it’s worth it. This recipe re-creates everything we love about Caesar salads with a healthier base, so you can enjoy the flavors and still feel good about the ingredients.
