Want to know the most difficult part of blogging recipes? Coming up with content that is actually interesting enough to fill a page. There is only so much that anyone can say about a Kale Caesar salad.

I love caesar salad, but most of the time I don’t like taking all the steps necessary to make a homemade dressing. It can be quite the process. I wanted a quick dressing that was homemade, creamy and tastes amazing! This dressing saves the day! By using premade mayo, this dressing can be ready in under 8 minutes. And feel free to use as much as garlic as you like. I always use at least two large cloves of garlic. And don’t skip the anchovy paste! You might be tempted especially if you have never used it before, but in my opinion, it is an absolute must.

One more thing before you go! Kale is an amazing green and works perfectly with this dressing. Kale also stores really well with dressing on it for at least 24 hours. So now there won’t be anymore throwing away extra kale caesar salad. If you don’t have Kale, Romaine is always a safe favourite and Arugula is our new personal favourite.
