Kale Chicken Caesar Salad

I’m always in the mood for a Caesar salad, but I find that kale is so much heartier than romaine and makes for a better fall/winter salad because salad isn’t just for the summertime. This is by far one of the easiest salad recipes and this homemade dressing is sure to make everyone think that you slaved over it for hours.
