Chicken Caesar Salad
Caesar salads can be huge fat traps with their creamy dressings and deep-fried croutons. Not this one. Make your own tangy, low fat Caesar salad dressing, and use either fat-free croutons from the grocery store or bake your own croutons.

Use rotisserie chicken for speed, or top your salad with slices of freshly grilled skinless chicken breasts.

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 large head of romaine lettuce, torn
  • 2 cups chopped, cooked, skinless chicken breast
  • 1 cup fat-free or low fat croutons
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • .
  • Dressing:
  • 1/3 cup plain non-fat yogurt, drained (or fat-free mayonnaise)
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp anchovy paste (optional)
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed

Preparation:

Arrange torn Romaine lettuce in a big serving bowl. Top with chicken, croutons and sprinkle with cheese. Whisk dressing ingredients together and drizzle over salad. Gently toss until combined. Add freshly ground black pepper to taste.

excellent!, Member loricastillo3

This is a great recipe... I am watching my calorie intake and this salad was amazing. the only thing I did different was grill the chicken breast in a little spray of PAM and seasoned it with montreal chicken seasoning. so yummy! My fiance even loved it :)
