Chicken Caesar Salad Parmesan Salad

Chicken Caesar Salad

Yes, believe it or not, this very Italian sounding Chicken Caesar Salad originates in Mexico.  Dating back to the 1920s the original recipe is rather unhealthy for a salad, but I have made a few changes that allow you to enjoy the Caesar Salad with a little less guilt.

This is a great summer Saturday, night recipe, super easy and works perfectly with a chilled glass of white wine and some crusty bread. ?You can also make a large bowl full as a side for BBQ season and just drop the chicken to make it a little lighter? Perfect!
