Secrets to an Awesome Caesar Salad

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!

Pub Lunch @ The Lemon Grove Hotel, Wallsend

Thursday, May 8th, 2014

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!

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 :)
