Kale Caesar Salad Nori Wraps | Nutrition Stripped

I first introduced a fun variation of my famous Massaged Kale Salad with showcasing them in three ways; including vegan caesar. Today I’m sharing a slight variation to that which involves nori seaweed wraps for a fun way to eat salad, yet incorporate mineral rich seaweed into your diet as well. If you’ve never tried nori seaweed or have no idea what it is, you’re about to learn why I love and incorporate these unique food into my diet all the time!

Watch me make the Kale Caesar salad on my YouTube channel here and then just assemble with nori as noted in the recipe!

Get to know nori. Nori is one of my favorite seaweeds to use in cooking, partially because it’s the most versatile and most “common” of all the seaweeds used. Think of the last time you’ve had sushi, or if you know what sushi is, nori is the dark green/black outer wrapping. Nori like most seaweeds are incredibly rich in minerals, especially iodine which is important for thyroid health; and manganese, copper, iron, zinc, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, B vitamins, vitamin A and C. Nori comes in several varieties including lightly toasted, toasted with sea salt, toasted with flavorings, and “raw” (untoasted and unflavored). I prefer the raw or lightly toasted for most of my cooking needs. Nori can be added to dishes like this for a mineral boost, added to miso soups, torn into chopped salads, sushis, salad dressings, and much more. I love the taste of nori, but like anything with a strong flavor it’s an acquired taste.

Pack this on-the-go! The wonderful thing about massaged kale salads is the density of these leaves allow the salad to hold up when packed, even after you’ve poured dressing over it as you’ll do with this recipe. I recommend storing the salad separate in a tupperware container like this one, and then storing the nori sheets in a separate ziploc bag (it’s important to keep these away from moisture as much as possible until serving. Then assemble the salad wrap right before serving!

Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4
A delicious and mineral rich vegan caesar dressing over massaged kale, wrapped in nori sheets. VGN GF Raw Paleo
  • 5-6 cups raw kale, Massaged Kale
  • nori sheets
  • ½ cup raw cashews
  • ½ cup macadamia nuts
  • 1 tablespoon tahini
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2 teaspoons dijon mustard
  • 3 kalamata olives, pitted
  • Fresh ground black pepper
  • Sea salt to taste
  1. For the Caesar dressing: simply put all dressing ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. Adjust sea salt and fresh black pepper to taste.
  2. Follow the steps for massaging kale, followed by working in the Ceasar dressing with your hands until well covered.
  3. For the assembly: Lay 1 nori sheet flat on a flat surface, place about a handful of the salad mixture onto the nori and loosely roll the nori in a cone until the salad is packed into the nori sheet. These do not need to be tight like sushi. Serve immediately.
Nutritional yeast is NOT an active yeast and is essential to the recipe.

I hope you all enjoy these as much as I do! These are great for newcomers to nori sheets or even to get picky eaters and little ones to eat seaweed. Share below how you like them and be sure to use the #nutritionstripped to show me your recipe remakes.

  • Absolutely love these flavors together! I frequently add nori into my vegan caesar dressing to add an “anchovy” type of flavor but never once thought to wrap the entire salad in nori. I don’t think there is any other way I want to have a kale caesar now!

  • This is SUCH a great idea! I used to absolutely love Caesar Wraps in college -wraps that happened to be filled with all kinds of ick. I’ve been frequently using kale and cashews to make my caesar, but i’ve never thought to put them in a nori wrap. Yum!

  • Jeff

    How would this fit into a daily meal planning scenario? Would it be considered a snack between meals, part of a lunch, etc?

    Looking forward to trying this!

  • This looks interesting and yummy. In the past I’ve used nori more like seasoning but I’d love to try these kale wraps!

  • Cassandra

    I’m sure this does taste good, but it looks like your salad is wrapped in a plastic bag!

  • Looks delish! And I love that video 🙂

  • Genius! Salad sushi wraps, I love it…the ideas are endless.

  • This is a keeper! I’m saving this for when we get fresh kale in our garden again and the weather is warmer! Should I get some kale at a farmer’s market before then, I will be in for a treat, given it’s one of our warmer days here vs. cold and wet. 😉

    Thanks so very much!

  • Leeann

    Ate this moments ago for lunch – fantastic!!

  • Candice

    I have been craving these since you posted the recipe. Just finished making them for work tomorrow and I couldn’t stop snacking on the Caesar salad and nori sheets. SO perfect. Thank you for this!

  • Wow, this looks awesome! And the fact that the total prep time is just 10 mins… Will definitely be trying out this recipe!

  • Lauren

    What is your recommendation if using raw cashew butter rather than whole cashews?

    • You can use that, just make sure the cashew butter is just cashews. Also, you’d use less cashew butter because it’s very dense in comparison to just using whole cashews.

  • victorious

    Hi there! Your vision on food preparation is just AWESOME! Loving many of your recipes, but wanted to share something about sheets. If you”toast” them over a low gas flame or the heart of a toast it adds a great flavor to the wrap. (Toast before making the wrap). Keep up the hard work! 🙂

  • Parris Gordon

    How long does the caesar dressing keep for if I store the extra that I didn’t use?

    These are amazing!

  • I loved watching this video, McKel! It was so fun to see your process in the kitchen. And (at the risk of sounding super weird!!) you have such a nice speaking voice that was great to listen to! 🙂

  • Erin

    Can’t wait to try this but i’m allergic to cashews! What can I substitute the cashews out with? I can have all other nuts!

    • McKel Hill

      You can use almonds or macadamia nuts, Erin!
