Ingredients

Croutons:

2 tbsp. olive oil
4 garlic cloves, grated / garlic powder is cool too frfr
½ tsp. kosher salt
¼ tsp. black pepper
¼ tsp. red pepper flakes (optional)
1 loaf of bakery bread (I went w/ french + i’m not disappointed)

Salad:
4 cups chopped baby romaine lettuce
4 cups of rainbow kale (regular kale could work)

RINSE AND CLEAN THE SALAD

1 cup halved or quartered cherry tomatoes
2 tbsp. EVOO – extra virgin olive oil (optional but makes kale tender + crisp)

Sirracha Caesar Dressing
Makes: about 2 cups

1 ½ cups grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese (about 6 oz.)
1 cup mayonnaise
4 garlic cloves, smashed
2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1 tbsp. Sriracha chili sauce
1 ½ tsp. anchovy paste (ok, i’m not gonna front, you may or may not find this shit
in your local supermarket)
1 ½ tsp. Dijon mustard
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce (in the event you can’t find the anchovy paste, the
flavor of the Worcestershire sauce is faint enough to mimic + achieve the anchovy
fishy taste but still use this too if you have the anchovy paste)
¼ tsp. kosher salt
¼ tsp. black pepper
¼ cup water

I could GPS you if you need some ad(dressing):

Process the cheese, mayonnaise, garlic, lemon juice, Sriracha, anchovy paste,
mustard, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper in a food processor or blender until
smooth. Add up to ¼ cup water, 1 tablespoon at a time, and process until desired
consistency is reached. Chill until ready to use. The dressing will keep in the
fridge for two weeks.

Cooking:

1. Slice the bakery bread into cubes: Preheat oven to 350°. Line a rimmed baking
sheet with aluminum foil.

2. Stir together the oil, garlic, salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes in a
small bowl. Arrange the bread cubes slices in a single layer on prepared baking
sheet, and brush with oil mixture.

3. Bake in preheated oven until browned and crisp, 11 to 12 minutes. Cool 10 minutes.

4. Meanwhile, assemble the salad: Arrange the lettuce, tomatoes, and onions on a
platter, and drizzle with desired amount of dressing. Throw those croutons, and top
with the shaved cheese.

The kale caesar is my absolute favorite salad because it can be manipulated in so
many ways. From the dressing to the protein. With or without the kale and just the
romaine. Add salmon, chicken, steak or any other protein. (I’m vegetarian so issa no
but do your thing y’all)
