This salad is one of the most popular salads out there. And in my opinion, one of the tastiest as well. But what makes homemade version taste best? Fresh vegetables, natural bacon, with the addition of green onions, and my special touch – the biggest part: Homemade Caesar Dressing is what makes this salad taste incredible!
Kids are usually not big salad eaters, but when it’s made with the best ingredients possible it takes this salad to the next level. It tastes new, rich and absolutely scrumptious. Mom makes “The Best” Caesar salad, is what the kids have to say about it! If kids love it, it’s a pretty safe bet that adults definitely will. So, enjoy, friends!!!
1 –Romaine Lettuce
1bunch - red onion
½ small – purple onion
12 oz. (340 g) – grape tomatoes
6 strips – cooked bacon (see how to broil bacon)
4 oz. – fully cooked chicken strips
½ cup – freshly grated Romano cheese
1 cup (254 ml) – Homemade Caesar Dressing
Separate, rinse and pat dry with paper towel each Romaine lettuce leaf.
Cut Romaine lettuce and place into a large glass bowl. Then cut in half rinsed (and dried) grape tomatoes and add to the bowl. Add chives, sliced red onion, cooked, cooled and chopped bacon and chicken strips. (Tip: After I broil and remove bacon from the pan, I use the same pan with bacon oil to broil chicken strips on for a few minutes. It tastes so much better.) Finally, add freshly grated Romano cheese. (Tip: If you are not ready to serve the salad, cover the bowl with lid or plastic food wrap and place it into the fridge to preserve freshness.) This is a perfect make-ahead salad.
