Kale Caeser Salad
When we spiralize zucchini to make our zoodles or zucchini ‘pastas’, we use the left-over zucchini cores to make a dried ‘zucchini anchovy’ or ‘zuchovy’. Usually you dehydrate or bake it, but you can also leave it raw after marinating. It’s awesome sprinkled over this Kale Caesar.
