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!

    Yum – I love caesar salad and yep I dry my lettuce the same way as you! Mind you, I do love egg in mine (I’m sorry!!!). Your’s looks delicious without it though :-)

      I don’t mind egg being served ON my caesar…. like halved boiled eggs…. but when they’re chopped and mixed through? nooooooo I can’t deal with the texture!
