Spicy Caesar Dressing

Okay so this isn't really caesar dressing in any way but it is inspired by what seems to be the hottest new brunch item in NYC, spicy kale caesar salad.  It was a particularly delicious one my sister and I had at The Butcher's Daughter in Nolita, that inspired me to make it myself.  I wanted to be able to have this tasty item at home any day of the week (perhaps even for dinner!).

As usual i challenged myself to make this dressing super healthy without compromising too much on taste.  My toughest critic, president of the peanut gallery, and lovingly honest husband gave this his highest rating...a request to make it again.

I love how flavorful and creamy it is - it can make simple lettuce a little more exciting but it also works with so many toppings - some of my favorites being avocado, sweet potato, pickled red onion, toasted walnuts, mushrooms, I could go on all day.
