This vegan caesar salad a recipe that I’ve been making for a while, and wanted to share because I get asked all the time how to make it.
There are a few reasons why I love this recipe:
It’s full of plant protein and healthy fats
It’s something that you can prep the night before and bring to work for lunch (I personally think that dressed kale gets better with time, so I’ll dress the salad first and let it sit in the fridge overnight)
Vegan Caesar Salad
1 large bunch dinosaur kale, washed and torn (I prefer this, but you can use any type of lettuce you prefer)
1/2 cup mixed nuts/seeds (I used sunflower, chia, and cashews)
Vegan Caesar Dressing (see below)
Rinse kale/lettuce and chop (or tear) to your liking.
Make sure kale is dried (I just pat it off with water and let it air dry for ~15 minutes).
Toast nuts/seeds on a pan over low heat for ~5 minutes (no oil needed).
Massage dressing into the kale.
Top with all other ingredients and enjoy!

The term “detox” has been exploited as a way to sell diet programs. But is there some truth to it? Do we need to “detox”? The answer, as I typically say with nutrition, is that it depends.
