Healthier Caesar Salad

Love Caesar salad but are watching your waistline? We’ve created a healthier Caesar salad that still includes Parmesan cheese, garlic croutons, lemon garlic dressing! We used grilled kale, but if you don’t want to spend the time grilling it, using raw kale works too. Just massage the dressing in to reduce the bitterness of the leafy green!
