I’m a salad convert. I admit it.
I was the one on date night getting the burger while my husband would order a salad. True story. But about a year or so ago, I decided to give salads a real try. I started small, with a side salad here and there. And then I went all out. I found not only did I like them but I loved coming up with fun salad recipes and combinations, too!
From strawberry, peach & spinach to Greek salad and Mason Jar Salad! There are so many great ways to make salads and so many flavor combos out there!
But you can’t go wrong with the classics. Like a Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad. The classic flavors of grilled chicken with a simple caesar dressing just hit the spot.
I’ve teamed up with Marzetti® to bring you the yummiest and easiest grilled chicken caesar salad recipe! Check out my video on how to make this delicious recipe:
I first marinated the chicken in an easy yogurt and lemon marinade. Then I grilled it, sliced it and served it over a bed of romaine lettuce with homemade croutons and shredded parmesan cheese. Then I drizzled it with Marzetti® Simply Dressed® Caesar Dressing which has only a few simple ingredients and no preservatives or artificial flavors!
You can find all Marzetti® dressings next to the produce, in a refrigerated section. I have tried all four of their Marzetti® Simply Dressed® line dressings and they are delicious! I love that they are preservative free and contain ingredients that I know. No weird chemicals or additives. You will love this grilled chicken caesar salad! It’s the perfect salad for spring and summer!
