Obsessed might be an understatement! Paleo Chef, Pete Evans has really outdone himself with this fabulous kale caesar salad. I’ve included his homemade caesar dressing (which is unbelievably delicious); however, if you’d like to cut your prep time in half, I’d suggest using Primal Kitchen’s Caesar Salad Dressing. Here’s my twist on Pete’s recipe…
Kale Caesar Salad
Yield: 1 Monster Salad // Prep time: 30 min
- 1 soft-boiled egg
- 2 strips nitrate-free bacon
- 2 heaping handfuls kale
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 1 Tbsp Italian parsley
- 2 Tbsp pine nuts, toasted
- 4 anchovy fillets
- Fresh grated Pecorino Romano cheese
- Fresh ground pepper
- Primal Kitchen Caesar Dressing
Salad Dressing Ingredients
- 2 egg yolks
- 4 anchovy fillets, rinsed and finely chopped
- 1 garlic clove, crushed
- 1 Tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tsp Dijon mustard
- 1 cup light olive oil
- Himalayan sea salt
- Fresh ground pepper
Homemade Caesar Salad Dressing
Yield: 1 cup // Serving size: 4 Tbsp
- Combine the egg, anchovies, garlic, lemon juice and mustard in a food processor and pulse until combined.
- With the motor running gradually add the oil, drop by drop, until emulsified and thickened.
- Pour remaining oil in steady stream and continue to process until the dressing is the consistency of heavy cream.
- Add salt, pepper or more lemon to taste (if need be).
Leftover dressing can be transferred to a glass jar and stored for 3-5 days.
- Pan fry the bacon until golden crisp. Cool, chop and set aside.
- Place the egg in a large saucepan of water. Bring to a boil over medium heat and simmer for 5 minutes, or until cooked to your liking. Remove from heat, drain and cool in ice bath. Peel, cut in half and set aside.
- Wash and massage kale. Piece off in large bowl. Add dressing and toss.
- Sprinkle with toasted pine nuts and parsley.
- Top with bacon, egg, anchovies and cheese.
- Add some fresh ground pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice.
- Prepare yourself for a serious foodgasm!
This serving size is seriously so monstrous that it really serves as a one-and-done meal. Alternatively, if you plan on eating multiple meals throughout the day you can easily cut the portion size in half or share with someone you ❤️.
