Kale Salad with Shrimp and Caesar Dressing

Kale may be the trendiest superfood, but it’s also one of the healthiest—and this simple, satisfying salad is full of it. Kale is a sturdy green, but making it tender and salad-ready is easy: Just massage the leaves with the dressing before serving. Make your prep time even quicker by using leftover cooked shrimp from the Lettuce Wraps with Shrimp and Thai Lime Sauce recipe.
