Chicken Caesar Salad

I asked for salad last night for dinner, and Caesar it was. Even though the lettuce is the only salad thing about it. It has BACON in it, it’s not really salad! :p

Anyway, I’m told the following are essential to a great Caesar…

Chicken Caesar Salad

Freshly cooked bacon, let to lose some fats on the paper towel.

Crispy crunchy lettuce. There is a type of lettuce at woolies called the “sweet crunch” lettuce that is preferable to cos. Washed and thoroughly dried. Either with a salad spinner (that we don’t have) or again, lie on and pat dry with paper towel.

Chicken Caesar Salad

Shredded chicken breast. From a bbq chook. But the breast meat only (I would use it all. But that’s me!)

And the “Right” dressing (Cardini’s Caesar Salad Dressing) some anchovies, croutons (we usually get Praise croutons) and shaved Parmesan cheese (Mil Lel in this case).

And no egg. Don’t ruin it!

It was our every intention to head to Wallsend to the Krank It! festival at the start of April…. a plan foiled by going on the Saturday, and it being a one day event on the Sunday….. So we watched some of the cars coming into town while trying a pub lunch at The Lemon Grove Hotel.

After much deliberation, Bruce had a schnitzel with prawn mornay sauce and such delicious chips!

While I had a chicken salad, which was full of yums and washed down with a glass of Chardy :)

When in Rome!

When organising to catch up one evening with a friend, I wasn’t sure if we’d be doing coffee, dinner, or dessert, so headed back to Citrus Cafe. Good move, as the salads we got were awesome :)

Lunch at Grind Cafe, Darby Street.

September 13, 2011

Rish’s parents got back from overseas on the weekend, so the hoardes went to Grind on Darby for lunch on Sunday. My coffee was good. Went down well. A couple of bowls of smashed chats. Too much smashing! Not all could be easily eaten. :\ Salt and pepper squid was ordered by 4 I think. […]

We were going to make our own calamari, however Woolies were out if the fresh stuff, so we got a pack of De Costi chili and lime calamari and built a salad around it. Light and yum! And not too stingy on my mouth ulcers…) Like this:Like Loading…

I love tuna… but…

November 9, 2010

I may have to cut back on tuna, or at least look to buying from more sustainable brands… Like this:Like Loading…
