THE RECIPE

Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad

A restaurant favorite at home

Caesar salad just might be on of the most iconic salads of all time. Available on nearly every restaurant menu and made with crispy romaine lettuce and a tangy, creamy dressing, there’s no reason that we should leave this one to only be ordered when eating out! In fact, by being selective about each of the ingredients you choose and making every component from scratch, you can make a grilled chicken caesar salad that’s even better than anything you’ll get at restaurants. Willow breaks down the process for us step-by-step, including making your own croutons and dressing from scratch (with and without an egg yolk if you’re squeamish). Unlike the over-dressed salads you often see, toss the romaine lightly in the sharply-flavored dressing (using this technique), top it with slices of simply grilled chicken, and shave freshly grated parmesan on top for a healthy lunch your family will love.

One of the things we love best about Willow’s style is that she doesn’t take any shortcuts that sacrifice the quality of a dish.
