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 which 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
