Spicy Kale Caesar With Rye Breadcrumbs

Spicy Kale Caesar With Rye Breadcrumbs
In This Article

This is not your average Caesar salad. The unexpected combination of rye breadcrumbs, pecorino cheese, thinly sliced serrano peppers and fresh mint makes it peppery, crunchy, bright and spicy. The kale provides a boost of fiber. Look for lacinato kale (or dinosaur kale) with the smooth green leaves. This may seem like a lot of kale, but it wilts down and tenderizes after being massaged with the dressing. The egg yolk helps emulsify the Caesar-style vinaigrette, making it silky and creamy. If you are uncomfortable consuming a raw yolk, the salad is just as delicious without it.

Use this recipe to make the vegetable portion of your meal more exciting, especially as you try to get back on track. Kale is packed with vitamin K and antioxidants, making it a perfect winter vegetable to protect your immune system.
