Chicken Caesar Salad with Grilled Croutons
A creamy Caesar dressing made with Greek yogurt tops a greens and kale salad finished with grilled baguette croutons and juicy chicken.Yield: Serves 2
- 4 oz. plain non-fat Greek yogurt
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 3 Tbsp. skim milk
- 2 cloves garlic
- 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
- salt and pepper
- 3 cups spring greens
- 1 cup kale
- 1 chicken breast, grilled
- 2 slices baguette bread
For dressing, combine yogurt through salt and pepper in a blender and puree until well combined. Add or reduce milk for desired thickness.
Slice two pieces of 1" thick baguette and mist both sides with cooking spray. Place on med-high grill and toast each side about 2 minutes each. Watch closely. You can grill the chicken breast simultaneously.
After grilling, use a bread knife to cut the baguette into cubes. Then, slice the chicken thinly.
Toss the dressing with the greens and kale, then top with sliced grilled chicken and croutons. Add more parmesan curls if desired.
