Easy Caesar Salad
We’re pretty obsessed with Chicken Caesar salad around here. But I have to say, this is one of my favorite salads! 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. 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.
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:
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 in seconds.
We will definitely be making this version again & again because it’s beyond simple!
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.
