Sometimes I am in the mood for a Traditional Caesar Salad. It’s always a nice option to have on the table. Of course it’s perfect as a side for any Italian main course, but you could also toss in some rotisserie chicken and make it a complete meal. Very versatile!

Traditional Caesar Salad with a Gluten Free Option


What’s in the Traditional Caesar Salad with a Gluten Free Option:

This salad is so simple: Chopped romaine, croutons and some grated parmesan…that’s it! If you live gluten free, use GF croutons, there are so many good choices these days! You may also need GF Worchestershire sauce.

Caesar Dressing: Whisked Together in Minutes!

Caesar dressing is super easy to make: just whisk together mayonnaise, olive oil, lemon juice, a little dijon mustard, parmesan and Worcestershire sauce (anchovy paste is optional) and toss with the greens. Chosen Foods makes healthy mayo in a variety of options. Choose from traditional, vegan, and keto options! Each contains healthy fats like avocado oil and coconut oil. Definitely a great choice!

Serving Suggestion:

Caesar salad is a great side salad for any main course. But I have a delicious suggestion: serve alongside my Easy Chicken Parmesan!
