I love a good Caesar salad. It is simple, savory, and delicious. Plus it is super easy to make. I am a hard core believer in homemade salad dressing. Bottled Caesar is disgusting compared to homemade and this one is so simple there is no reason not to make it.
Chicken Caesar Salad
- Cooked chicken (I use leftover rotisserie chicken)
- Parmesan shavings
- 2 garlic cloves
- 4 anchovy fillets
- 2 egg yolks
- Salt and pepper to taste (I don’t use salt because the fish is salty enough)
- 1 tbsp whole grain mustard
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 3 tbsp olive oil
Get out a small bowl in which to combine your dressing ingredients. On a cutting board, finely chop the garlic and anchovies together until they make a paste. Add to the bowl. Add the egg yolks and mix together well. Add the mustard and lemon juice. Stir again. Add the olive oil and whisk vigorously, until the dressing looks creamy.
In a bowl, add lettuce, chicken, croutons, and Parm shavings. Top with desired amount of dressing.
