  • Add half of dressing to kale with croutons until thoroughly coated. Eat and Enjoy.

Notes

Gluten- Free Option: Instead of croutons you can add some roasted chickpeas to make it gluten-free. Take one can of chick peas rinsed and dried, add 1 tbsp of olive oil, 1 tsp of salt, 1 tsp paprika, 1 tsp garlic powder and spread on a baking sheet. Bake at 400 degree for 45 minutes until crispy. 
**Remaining salad dressing can be stored in the fridge for 4 days**
