Grilled Kale Caesar Salad

Time: 30 minutes. Kale takes the place of lettuce in this twist on traditional Caesar, and wilting the greens on the grill adds a subtle smoky flavor.

Sunset JANUARY 2010

  • Yield: Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire
  • 4 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 4 anchovy fillets, minced
  • 2 bunches kale, stems and ribs removed
  • 1 cup croutons
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Preparation

1. Prepare a grill for medium heat (about 350°; you can hold your hand 5 in. above cooking grate only 6 seconds). In a large bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, oil, mustard, parmesan, lemon juice, Worcestershire, garlic, anchovies, and 1/4 cup water. Pour half the dressing into a small bowl and set aside.

2. Working in batches, lay kale flat on the grill and cook on both sides until edges get brown and crispy and kale starts to wilt, about 4 minutes total. Let cool slightly, then add to the dressing in the large bowl and toss to coat. Evenly divide kale among 4 salad plates. Top with croutons and a sprinkle of pepper. Serve extra dressing on the side.
