This Cesar dressing is great on any leafy green but I like using raw kale due to its impressive nutritional benefits. Kale is rich in vitamin A, C and calcium. This salad also works brilliantly with roasted kalettes or a mix or roasted and raw greens. The crunchy cheesy chickpeas are a protein rich alternative to croutons and packed full of fibre. The extra virgin olive oil used in the dressing supports heart health so it beats a store bought processed dressing.

(The dressing can easily be made vegan by using a parmesan alternative, and vegan Worcestershire sauce).


2 handfuls of Kale per person 1 tbsp black olives per person

Optional: Serve with Chicken For the chickpea croutons: (Serves 6 or can be stored for a few days in an airtight container) 400g chickpeas, rinse and pat dry 1 tsp olive oil 1tsp garlic granules 30g grated parmesan

For the dressing: (serves 6 or can be saved in the fridge for 3 days) 250ml soya cream 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce 1 garlic clove 1 lemon 1 tsp Dijon Mustard ½ tsp tabasco sauce Pinch of cayenne pepper 50g parmesan cheese grated 150ml extra virgin olive oil


1. Preheat the oven to 180’.

2. Add the kale leaves to a bowl and toss with juice from half a lemon to soften the leaves. (If using roasted kalettes, place on a baking tray with a drizzle of olive oil and season with salt, roast for 5-8 mins until crispy)

3. Add the chickpeas to a baking tray with olive oil, garlic granules and parmesan. Season and roast for 30 minutes until crisp.

4.In a blender, mix all of the ingredients together, except the olive oil. Add the olive oil gradually to give a creamy texture.

5. Serve the leaves topped with olives, chickpea croutons and a generous drizzle of the Cesar dressing
