Grilled Kale Caesar Salad


Pearl Market


Downtown Columbus


6 tablespoons mayonnaise
6 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons Worcestershire
4 teaspoons minced garlic
4 anchovy fillets, minced
2 bunches kale, stems and ribs removed
1 cup croutons
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  1. Prepare a grill for medium heat (about ³⁵⁰°; you can hold your hand 5 in. above
    cooking grate only 6 seconds). In a large bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, oil, mustard, parmesan, lemon juice, Worcestershire, garlic, anchovies, and 1/4 cup water. Pour half the dressing into a small bowl and set aside.

  2. Working in batches, lay kale flat on the grill and cook on both sides until edges get brown and crispy and kale starts to wilt, about 4 minutes total. Let cool slightly, then add to the dressing in the large bowl and toss to coat. Evenly divide kale among 4 salad plates. Top with croutons and a sprinkle of pepper. Serve extra dressing on the side.
