We’re pretty obsessed with Chicken Caesar salad around here. But I have say, this one might have been my favorite Caesar salad yet! 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!!
The real star of this salad is the dressing. I 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.
The salad itself was pretty easy to make. I 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. 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. 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 (along with the pizza) in seconds. We will definitely be making this version again & again!

Next time you’re strolling down the refrigerated produce section, make sure to grab a bottle or two of Marzetti® Simply Dressed® Dressings. They come in four delicious varieties: Balsamic, Ranch, Caesar and Blue Cheese. Not only are they a quick and easy way to dress a salad, but taste pretty darn good too! They’d make a great addition to just about any kind of salad, I can’t wait to whip up a Caprese salad with their balsamic dressing. YUM! Which dressing would you try first?
