Kale and Roasted Broccoli Caesar Salad

In this recipe, broccoli joins another member of the cruciferous family, kale, to make a more filling Caesar compared to those made with romaine lettuce. The key to making this recipe especially tasty is to treat the kale to a 15 second massage with olive oil. This TLC makes the kale tender and more easily coated with the Caesar dressing.

Because of the fiber content in the kale and broccoli, this salad will keep you feeling full and satisfied. To make it a complete meal, try this recipe with this light-baked parmesan-breaded chicken.
