I know, I know. Salad for lunch makes me sound like some health obsessed freak who doesn’t understand real hunger. I take your sass and throw it right back, because this is not just any boring old salad. It’s chock full of deliciousness and guarantees to fill you up. It’s easy to make the night before; just pack your dressing separately and toss with the salad right before you are ready to eat.
I love this served with a sliced apple for a well rounded meal (because eating an apple by biting around the core is gross looking, and that kind of behavior doesn’t belong in an office setting).
Kale Chicken Caesar Salad
1/4 cup mayonnaise (I use Vegenaise)
juice from 1/2 of a lemon
1 spoonful of Dijon mustard
1 spoonful Worcestershire sauce
salt and pepper
3/4 cup roughly torn baby kale leaves
1 hard boiled egg, cut into 8 pieces
1/4 thinly sliced small Vidalia onion
1/3 cup cooked and shredded chicken
1 Tbsp shaved Parmesan cheese
Whisk together the first four ingredients and season to taste with the salt and pepper. Store separately until serving.
Place kale into container and top with the egg, onion, chicken and Parmesan.
Pack up and count down the hours until lunch!*
