Kale Chicken Caesar Chopped Salad with Crispy Prosciutto | Two Sales

If you love caesar salads you will love this salad.  It makes a great meal and saves easily too since the kale won’t wilt as quickly as other lettuces.  I came across this recipe in my new Skinny Taste cookbook and then decided to add quinoa and prosciutto to bulk up the salad a bit.  I loved the addition of both.  The dressing is so good.  Don’t get scared by the anchovies they really give it great depth and flavor.  This ended up being a really filling salad because of the protein and grains.  

Also I know many of you wonder if I feed my kids the same thing we eat.  The short answer is yes.  In this case my kids don’t like salad or lettuce- go figure.  So I just served them some of the chicken with a little sliced Parmesan cheese, sliced eggs and a veggie (carrots).  That way I didn’t have to cook them an entirely separate meal.  

Enjoy!

– adapted via Skinny Taste 

– 1 bunch laciando kale. chopped finely

– 1 rotisserie chicken chopped into bite size pieces

– 1 cup chopped cherry tomatoes cut in half

– 1 cup cooked quinoa

– 2 hard boiled eggs, chopped 

– 4- 5 pieces prosciutto

– shredded Parmesan cheese

D R E S S I N G 

– 1/2 grated Parmesan cheese

– 4 anchovy filets

– 1 garlic clove minced

– 3 tablespoons olive oil

– 1 tablespoon water

– juice of 1/2 a lemon

– 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar

– 1 tablespoon dijon mustard

– fresh black pepper

Place all dressing ingredients in a blender or food processor and bend until smooth.  Add another tablespoon of water if dressing is too thick.

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Lay prosciutto on a baking sheet and bake about 10 minutes until crispy. 

Arrange all salad ingredients in a bowl.    I like to keep my ingredients separate because I feel like it makes the leftovers less soggy.  Scoop a little of each ingredient in a bowl, top with crumbled prosciutto and drizzle with dressing.

    I love your blog and all of your delicious recipes!!! This salad looks amazing…I am trying to cut dairy out of my diet and was wondering if I was to eliminate the parmesan cheese would the dressing work or if its something I could use to replace the cheese???

    THis looks so delicious! I do the same thing with my kids re: not making a separate meal– I usually just add a carb to what the adults are eating!
