A recipe from my Delicious Detox Cooking Class, Vegan Caesar Salad- so good you won’t believe it’s healthy! This healthful Caesar salad is brimming with protein and fibre from the kale and pinto beans, and classically Caesar salad with Dijon mustard and garlic; warning, garlic breath will ensue- any Caesar salad worth its salt will give you dragon breath; but this recipe is so good, you won’t even care.
You can watch the video demo on my YouTube channel today; regardless, you NEED to add this vegan Caesar salad recipe to your repertoire!
Hint: It’s always a good idea to check out the video…
