When it comes to food newsletters, I subscribe to them all. One that I look forward to getting is Tasting Table's Chefs' Recipes. The ingredients are seasonal, and the dishes timely and clever. I usually hit print before I've finished reading the email! Earlier this week, the featured recipe was a kale Caesar salad from Chad Robertson's Tartine Bread cookbook.

Use the vinaigrette right after blending (it separates easily) and be sure to coat each leaf with the delicious mixture. Serve with roast chicken, a bowl of soup, or just enjoy a huge plate of it alone — that's what I did! I promise this dish won't disappoint, so get the recipe now.
