CURRENT SALAD OBSESSION

We’re pretty obsessed with Chicken Caesar salad around here – it truly is one of my favorite salads!
We wanted to share a simple version of this recipe and we LOVE how it turned out. It’s loaded with bacon, chicken, boiled egg, cherry tomatoes, croutons, Parmesan cheese and of course, Caesar dressing. This definitely isn’t your classic Caesar salad – it’s the ultimate!! Easy and delish!

The real star of this salad is the dressing. It definitely wouldn’t be a Caesar salad without Caesar dressing. I used Marzetti® Simply Dressed® Caesar Salad Dressing. It’s made with a few simple ingredients and no preservatives or artificial flavors to enhance the fresh, natural goodness of salad.

HOW TO MAKE CHICKEN CAESAR SALAD
The salad itself was pretty easy to make. The ingredients you use are easy to change up, but in ours we included:

baked chicken
hard-boiled eggs
cherry tomatoes
bacon
Parmesan cheese
croutons
Caesar dressing
CHICKEN. To make it, we used a lined sheet pan to bake the chicken and the bacon in the oven at the same time, which made clean-up a lot easier. You can also grill the chicken if you prefer that. I keep the seasoning simple and usually just add some salt, garlic pepper, and some olive oil to the chicken breasts. Grill over medium heat for 4-5 minutes on each side.

You can make this recipe even easier by using leftover chicken from a previous dinner.

OTHER FIXINGS. I already had a few boiled eggs in the fridge, so while things were baking I sliced them up along with the cherry tomatoes. For the greens I stuck with romaine, but you could definitely add in some mixed greens or kale too.

DRESSING. Once everything was prepped and ready to go, I tossed it with some Marzetti® Simply Dressed® Caesar Salad Dressing and served it with a sprinkle of freshly ground black pepper. It was so delicious. Our family devoured it in seconds. You can also try our our homemade caesar dressing too!

We will definitely be making this version again & again because it’s beyond simple!
MAKING AHEAD AND STORING
Can you make caesar salad in advance? Yes – you can! If making it ahead of time, we recommend cutting up the chicken, tomatoes and bacon and storing separately before serving. Cut eggs right before serving and add dressing and croutons right before serving.

How to store leftover salad? If your salad has been sitting at room temperature for 2 hours or longer it may no longer be safe to eat so go ahead and toss it. If the leftovers are still safe to eat store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

Keep in mind the croutons will not stay crisp and the greens will gradually become wilted and soggy so don’t wait too long to finish eating this delicious salad.

Sunflower oil, olive, palm, coconut, flaxseed, pumpkin, beet, almond, avocado, pistachio seed oil… No vegetable oil contains cholesterol and all contain vitamin E. But still everyone has different characteristics – positive and negative. We will now talk about olive oil!
As the name suggests, this oil is made from olives, by squeezing whole fruits. Depending on the quality of the olives and the way they are squeezed, there are different types of olive oil.
It is most often used in food, and it is not uncommon to use it in cosmetics and pharmacy, and as a fuel for traditional lamps.
In the diet it is best to consume without any processing, to use all the components. It is not recommended for frying give a high boiling point which releases harmful free radicals. It is also not recommended for preparing cakes and pastries due to the strong smell, and it can completely change the taste.
