The new and improved not-so-classic Caesar Salad. Healthy and modernized. With caesar salads being such a popular favorite, why not remake a vegan friendly version?! Even before I went plant based, I was never a true fan of caesar salads, probably because of the anchovies in the high-fat dressing.. and knowing how there was little nutritional value from romaine and croutons.. but after eating (basically) this entire bowl of Vegan Kale Caesar Pasta Salad to myself for 2 meals straight, you can probably guess that I’m a new fan now!
