Kale & Chicken Scaloppine Caesar

Jenn Louis, Chef and Co-Owner of Lincoln and Sunshine Tavern in Portland, Oregon:

"I love kale! If you remove the stems of this sturdy green, slice the leaves thinly and toss them with a hearty dressing, they stand up to other substantial ingredients, like the pan-fried chicken and chunky croutons I use here. And a little cheese on top never hurts."
