Mexican Caesar Salad

I love making this salad and I really want to share the recipe with you! I made it the other day for lunch at my girlfriends house. She was doing a photoshoot for her new skincare line. Be on the lookout for LANIMA beauty! It’s the most beautiful line of clean skincare! Ok, here’s the recipe, more on skincare later 🙂

1 buch of lacinto kale, chopped

1/2 cup cilantro, roughly chopped

1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
