Vegetarian (Filling) Caesar Salad

Wait! Before you read on, have you checked out my vegetarian Caesar dressing recipe yet? It's kind of a must for this salad. :)

By adding things like Kale and pumpkin seeds, we can turn a semi-healthy Caesar salad into a nutrition and filling out! Here's how I do it:

What you need:

2 cups shredded kale

2 cups shredded romaine lettuce

2 small (or 1 large) carrot, grated

1/2 cup pumpkin seeds

2 slices whole-wheat bread cubed

1 tbsp olive oil

1/2 garlic powder (or to taste)

1/2 tsp salt (or to taste)

The Green Mum Caesar salad dressing

shaved Parmesan cheese

lemon wedge for garnish

What you do:

1. Add the kale, romaine, carrot, and pumpkin seeds to a large salad bowl.

2. Drizzle cubed bread with olive oil, and mix with garlic powder and salt.

3. Bake the bread at about 350 F for 15 minutes. Watch to prevent burning! You've got some gooood croutons now.

4. Add the croutons, dressing, cheese, and lemon to salad and you are good to go!

5. Enjoy!
