Everyone knows the original Caeser salad, it was a thing to behold. infact it is easily the most popular salad on earth and in my opinion has been done to death. Sweet processed cheap ceaser dressings are often used to mask the flavour of crappy ingredients prepared by Dollar store chefs, its the one thing on the menu i never order unless i know the chef.
I decided to give it a slightly healthy upgrade, with absolutely no compromise on the flavour of the original recipe, just ensuring that you get the most protien packed; Vitamin enriched, nutritional value from your salad.
The addition of finely sliced Kayle and spring greens give the ceaser some extra crunch and i believe a added dimension, the dressing has a natural saltyness which comes through with the bitterness of the yogurt to really complete the salad.
This salad is a complete ceaser upgrade from the average and certainly on par with the original.
