There are some days when I wish a 300 character limit was not needed. When all I had to do was post some pictures, a recipe, and hit publish.
Last night Cason decided to wake up a couple of times in the middle of the night. At 3:20am I decided to just take him into our bed. Normally he’s fine and goes right back to sleep. This time he didn’t or maybe he did, I’m not sure he’s a kicker when he sleeps anyways and I kept getting kicked in the legs. By 5am my husbands alarm had gone off and I still had not fallen asleep from when I moved little man into bed.
Ugh… to say I’m exhausted is an understatement. I am on my second cup of coffee, it is cloudy out and all I want to do is curl up on the couch, watch a movie, and be fed pizza and wine all night! But alas, I have to reach that 300 character limit. Soo.. if you can’t tell. Today is one of those days I just don’t want to type. I want to show you the photos, give you the recipe and say peace out!
Ya feel me?! Does anyone else have days that they just want to check out?
Luckily, I get to share this delicious Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad with you .. then peace out!
What I love about this salad is almost everything in here is grilled! The chicken, the tomatoes, and even the lettuce.
It makes for one ultimate grill recipe … can you tell I can’t wait for the summer and all the fun BBQ parties! 🙂
The Caesar Dressing is actually one I’ve had on my site for a while. I found the recipe in one of my favorite books, Bread & Wine by Shauna Niequist. The recipe is totally a keeper and every time I’m in the mood for Caesar Salad this is the dressing I make! It has just the right amount of tang and saltiness.
But the real twist to this dressing is there are no egg and no anchovies! Woot woot! That alone sold me on this recipe.
I know you will love it and it will quickly become your go to recipe just like me.
So, if you’re in the mood for a light yet full flavored salad recipe that will take you right to grill season than this Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad is it!
If anything, try the salad just to see how good the grilled romaine lettuce is!
It takes 15 minutes to make and is only 289 calories a serving. Bon Appetit my friends and Happy Friday.
(woohoo we are almost to the weekend people, and that is reason enough to celebrate!)
