Caesar Salad Dressing Ingredients:

1 tbsp. of light mayonnaise;

1 tbsp. lemon juice;

2 tsp. extra virgin olive oil;

1 large garlic clove, pushed through a garlic press;

1 tsp. Dijon mustard;

1 tbsp. grated parmesan cheese;

Tabasco sauce and black pepper to taste.

Caesar Salad Ingredients:

1 chicken breast with skin;

½ medium head of Romain lettuce, cut into bite size pieces;

28g (1 oz.) Parmesan cheese shavings;

6 anchovy fillets (3 per serving);

1 tbsp. olive oil and 1 tbsp. of lemon juice mixed together;

Salt and black pepper.

How to Make Caesar Salad:

  1. Mix all the salad dressing ingredients together until smooth then set the dressing aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6.
  3. Place the chicken in an ovenproof dish and pour the olive oil and lemon juice mixture over it, season with salt and pepper, and then place into the oven and after 20 min test if the chicken is cooked by piercing the meat with a knife in the thickest part – the meat juices should be clear. If it is cooked then remove from the oven and let it cool down slightly.
  4. Place the lettuce into 2 salad bowls, add 3 anchovies on the top on the salad leaves and pour over the salad dressing, optionally you can leave the salad dressing on the side and use it sparingly to avoid extra calories.
  5. Remove the chicken skin and cut the chicken breast diagonally into long strips.
  6. Place half of the chicken breast into each salad bowl, sprinkle with shavings of Parmesan cheese, serve seasoned with black pepper and salt to taste, if needed.
