Big thanks to the salad recipe maker- Juli Novotny’s mother! She whipped up something super healthy & super delicious. Everyone has to try caesar salad atleast once in their life, so if you haven’t gotten around to a good tasting caesar…may we say this is a hands down ruler.


1 large salad bowl chopped kale & swiss chard

1/3 cup olive oil

6 cloves of garlic

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

4 T lemon juice

1 anchovies

1/3 cup parmesan {optional for top}

homemade croutons {optional}


Instead of romaine, as a caesar salad usually calls for, fill a large salad bowl with a variety of dark greens. In this case we used kale and swiss chard. Whip dressing together. Pour on top of greens and mix until thoroughly covered. Let sit for about 10-15 mintues before serving. Top with parmesan and croutons to give it that traditional taste. Or you can leave out the toppings if you are dairy and gluten-free.
