My Version of Caesar Salad with Roasted Chickpea Croutons

This is a simple, hearty salad that is delicious and healthy from Angela Liddon's "Oh She Glows" blog.  Since we are trying to reduce fat in our diet I substituted a dressing from another post. It was very good, but fairly mild- it tasted more like a ranch dressing. To make it for this recipe you could add some kick to it with some worcestershire or even a little more lemon juice or garlic.
I also omitted the nut and seed parmesan cheese because of the fat as well. But it sure looked good!

The croutons were a great addition. Make sure you roast them long enough that they are crunchy, and let them cool in the pan (two things I'll do next time). Otherwise, they're still on the soft side.

I would serve this to dinner guests (at least to some of them :)). And will definitely be making it again.  Links are posted below.

After soaking chickpeas (see recipe),  rinsing and rubbing dry, roast the croutons.

Chop the romaine..

strip the stems off the dinosaur kale and chop as well.

The combination of both colours is so lush!

Add the croutons
