This is my all-time favorite caesar salad. A slaw-like salad with thin strands of cabbage and kale make the base, topped with my greek yogurt caesar dressing and the crispiest chicken cutlets. Lots of parmesan, please!
This is a salad you need to try ASAP!
The crunchiest slaw made with cabbage and kale, tossed in my homemade greek yogurt caesar dressing and topped with lots of parmesan, sourdough croutons and the crispiest chicken cutlets that you can imagine.
I could probably eat this every day for the rest of my life!
This salad is phenomenal. That is all I have to say.
The base is crunchy cabbage and kale, and while I’ve shared a kale caesar before, adding the cabbage is a game changer. It is SO crunchy and textured. It adds so much bulk to the salad in the best way possible: more crunchiness, more satiety and more staying power.
And this is coming from someone who makes kale caesar salad constantly. It’s one of the most made salads in our house!
There is something so interesting about the thinly shredded cabbage and kale.
You look at it and think “is it a slaw, or is it salad?!” And you’re just so happily surprised at how delicious it tastes, how incredibly crunchy it is and how filling it is too. You could, of course, use it as a slaw on sandwiches too! In fact, it would probably be wonderful on my grilled chicken caesar sandwich.
Because the cabbage and kale are so hearty, leftovers of this work great too. Even when they are already tossed in the dressing! That makes this a great meal prep salad or one that you can grab for a work lunch the following day. Which is always a huge win.
Now. My favorite part about this salad is that… you don’t NEED the chicken.
I mean, we love this chicken. Especially me! I love this chicken. I could make it every single day and enjoy it. But the slaw-like salad is so incredibly crunchy and delicious that it can be fabulous on its own. Especially with all of the parmesan and crunchy sourdough croutons.
The slaw salad can be a side dish for dinner or a party too, if you decide to leave off the chicken. It’s really quite simple and delicious!
And let me just say – while my written recipe below is my favorite, don’t let the ingredient list intimidate you! If you’re in a place where making the dressing seems too overwhelming, use your favorite bottled caesar. You can prep the chicken a day ahead of time or slice your cabbage and kale and store it in the fridge. Definitely take some 10-minute meal prep when making this recipe!
This will be on maaaajor repeat.
