Recipe Summary test
We firmly believe that healthy cooking shouldn’t have to compromise on flavor. Case in point? Our Chopped Kale Salad with Toasted Breadcrumbs. In this 15-minute recipe inspired by a classic Caesar salad, we swap watery romaine for nutrient-rich kale and put our own spin on the salad’s signature creamy dressing (our secret ingredient? Greek yogurt).
Our lightened-up Caesar salad is made with hearty greens, grated eggs, and toasted breadcrumbs so crunchy you won’t miss the croutons. Quick tip: Save prep time by chopping the kale in batches in a food processor. Although this salad comes together quickly, you’ll want to take a moment to thoroughly toss the kale with the dressing—massaging the dressing into the kale makes the greens easier to chew (not to mention more flavorful).
The grated hard-boiled eggs may seem unconventional, but they’re a great way to sneak some extra protein into this weeknight-friendly salad. Rather than anchovies, this dressing gets its hit of umami from Worcestershire sauce, which replicates the tangy Caesar taste without any fishiness. Don’t skimp on the Parmesan: It’s the salty element that really ties the whole salad together.
