Kale Caesar Salad

Caesar Salad is one of those deceiving dishes tricking you into thinking it's healthy.Too often, though, the store-bought varieties are loaded with highly processed dressings that include refined sugars, stabilizers and hidden nasties.

Serves: 2

Why is good for you:

We've stripped this salad back and created a wholesome version that is both delicious and good for you!

Swapping the usual mayonnaise dressing for a gut-loving yogurt option, this meal instantly feels fresher. With the addition of anchovies, capers, garlic and apple cider vinegar, you need not worry about a lackluster flavor.

Did we mention how great anchovies are for you? These little guys contain just as much omega-3 fatty acids as salmon. Omega-3s can't be produced by the body and must be consumed. This essential molecule is helpful in preventing cardiovascular disease and supporting brain function.
