Caesar salads are one of the most famous salads in the world. But because you're vegan doesn't mean you have to miss out on the delicious treat known as Caesar salad. Instead of iceberg Lettuce to make this vegan recipe, we used kale. Some people do not like kale because it is too tough. But the secret to using kale in salads is to massage it. Massaging kale breaks down the tough fibers leaving behind tender leaves. We added crunchy roasted chickpeas to the Vegan Kale Caesar Salad and made a homemade dressing from raw cashews. We hope you enjoy this vegan kale Caesar salad.
