Hail Caesar Chicken Salad
Recipe by: Dietitians of Canada
Want to know something weird? Caesar salad has nothing to do with Julius Caesar, a famous emperor of Ancient Rome. Instead, a restaurant owner in Mexico invented it in the 1920s! It’s usually served with croutons, but you can also serve it with a piece of garlic toast on the side.
- 1 medium garlic clove, peeled and minced
- Juice of ½ lemon
- 1 ½ tablespoons red wine vinegar
- ½ teaspoon Dijon mustard
- ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 romaine lettuce, washed and chopped
- 1 cooked chicken breast, chopped
- 1 ½ tablespoons Parmesan cheese
- Salt and pepper
- Large bowl
- Whisk or fork
- In a large salad bowl, combine the garlic, lemon juice, vinegar, mustard and oil. Whisk to blend.
- Add the lettuce and chicken and toss well.
- Sprinkle with parmesan on top, season to taste with salt and pepper and serve.
