Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad

The temperatures have been warm in the Washington, D.C. area leading to an early start to the grilling season. Last night I took advantage of the weather by grilling chicken and making homemade Caesar salad dressing! I also felt inspired after reading an article by Dr. Cate on how bad bottled salad dressing is for you (even if  it says organic or all natural). The reason that bottled dressings may not be the best is that they may not be made from healthy oils. Why wouldn’t they use 100% olive oil? Mainly to keep the cost down –  instead of using 100% extra virgin olive oil, manufacturers add soybean or sunflower oil.  Since I already go out of my way to avoid vegetable oils, making Caesar dressing from scratch and using 100% extra virgin olive oil makes it healthier and tastier! I recommend Kasandrinos EVOO  http://bit.ly/HgD5a8 Here are some images and the recipe that I used to make this delicious and easy salad! Start off with raw chicken breast, season with salt and pepper. Chop up two or more heads of Romaine Hearts. Prepare the Caesar salad dressing. 3 cloves garlic 4 anchovy fillets (optional) 1 teaspoon Real Salt 1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce 1 1/2 tablespoons Dijon mustard 2 large egg yolks 1/2 cup E.V. olive oil Take garlic press and mash the garlic into a bowl. Add the salt and mash into a fine paste. This also can been done a cutting board with the side of your chef’s knife. Add egg yolks, Dijon, anchovies, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce and pepper. Whisk everything together. Slowly add the olive oil while whisking, until dressing becomes thick. You can also do this in a food processor; but, be careful not to over mix the dressing as this can […]
