Kale Caesar Salad with Baked Salmon is equal parts healthy and satisfying! Flavorful baked salmon tucked up next to a kale salad with homemade caesar dressing that will rock your world!
Listen. I love salmon! I feel like I can never get enough of it.
I also love kale - specifically kale salads. They are kinda famous around my family and one of my favorite things ever!
Today, I am putting a twist on a family favorite and using our Homemade Caesar Dressing we made last week for a kale caesar salad served alongside a simple, but delicious baked salmon!
This dish comes together in 35 minutes or less, is full of all the healthy things you could want, and a perfect meal to serve to guests coming over that is equal parts filling, satisfying, but also healthy!
So what are we waiting for?! Let's make kale caesar salad and some yummy baked salmon!
Step 1: Brush salmon with a little olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
Step 2: Pour homemade caesar dressing over kale and gently massage for 1-2 minutes. THIS IS KEY! By massaging into the kale, not only are you fully incorporating the dressing, but you're helping to soften the tough kale so that it is nice and tender when you eat it.
Step 3: Plate the salad and top with parmesan, sunflower seeds, more freshly cracked black pepper (croutons if you want), a lemon wedge and your baked salmon.
Serve this Kale Caesar Salad with Baked Salmon with a big glass of your favorite wine and enjoy it! This will quickly become a favorite of yours - I know it!
