This yummy Kale Caesar Salad is the perfect SweetGreen copycat recipe that you can enjoy from the comfort of your own kitchen. A fresh mix of both kale and romaine lettuce, juicy chicken, crunchy Parmesan crisps, and tangy Caesar dressing will have your mouthwatering. A delicious and healthy option for lunch or dinner! 



5 oz. package of baby kale, crisped in cold water if needed and dried well 

5 oz. romaine lettuce washed and dried very well

1 pound of cooked chicken breast 

1 bag Parmesan Whisps or similar product 

1/3 cup shaved Parmesan from a block of Parmigiano-Reggiano 

1 container of grape tomatoes

1 bottle of Primal Kitchen Caesar dressing (or homemade Caesar dressing)

2 limes


1.Prep your ingredients

  • Shred kale
  • Chop romaine
  • Slice grape tomatoes in half
  • Dice prepped chicken

2. Assemble salads, dividing ingredients into 4 portions.

  • Divide greens into 4 bowls (about 1 1/2 cups of greens per bowl)
  • Add chicken and tomatoes, dividing evenly (about 3/4 cup of diced chicken and 1/2 cup of tomatoes)
  • Add 8 Parmesan Whisps into each bowl 
  • Divide shaved Parmesan among all the bowls 
  • Drizzle 2 T of dressing onto each bowl 
  • Finish with a squeeze of lime over each bowl.  I like to also garnish with a lime wedge so I can add more lime later.


Makes 4 servings (see instructions above to know exact amounts of each ingredient per bowl)
