This sriracha kale caesar salad turns takes the traditional salad and turns up the heat and health with spicy sriracha and tuscan kale.
My husband is a caesar salad addict. I’m not even slightly exaggerating. When we go out to nice dinners, I have to have a “talk” with him before we leave the house informing him he’s not allowed to order a caesar salad for dinner.
I wish I could be the kind of person who just didn’t care what he eats, but I’m not.
1. It’s a complete waste of an order at any place we go. If he wants to order a caesar salad for lunch while he’s working, sure, totally appropriate. On a night out at a half way decent restaurant, no. Just no.
2. It limits what I get to eat. Damn straight I’m tasting his food. He’s so not a “let me taste your food” kind of person and I so am. He’s not ordering a caesar salad because I want to taste pretty much everything else on the menu besides that.
3. It’s embarrassing. It’s like a grown-up kids meal if that makes sense and comes with a side of “I’m judging you” waiter glances.
4. Half the time, I know he doesn’t even want the stupid salad, he’s just too lazy to look at the rest of the menu and make a decision. I live with the most chill/sometimes verging on lazy person on the planet and the amount of crazy this can sometimes make me isn’t even quantifiable.
So, I made this with him in mind and he then proceeded to get all squeamish when he saw me taking out the anchovies for the dressing. To which of course I maturely called him the stupidest caesar salad fanatic there ever was if he didn’t realize he was eating anchovies all these years in the pounds upon pounds of ceasar dressing he’s consumed.
His face contorted in such a way you’d think I told him he was eating crickets or something, not a measly anchovy.
And that, my friends, is how I think I ended the caesar salad addiction…by making ceasar salad. Go figure.
