Recipe Review: Caesar Salad

Hi Readers,

Happy Monday!  How's it going for you?  It's going pretty good here, just super busy!  I started working out a little today, and got our Christmas cards together, AND had an initial DR's appointment today!  It went really well, and hopefully I will be getting my asthma and allergies in check, which would be beyond incredible.  But, I didn't get home until after 5, and I didn't have time to really cook a huge meal, so I am so glad I had planned to make this recipe!
As you can see, it is Caesar Salad, it has chicken and bacon in it, along with parmesean cheese and toasted bread bits, (I just realized I didn't take a picture).  I'm going to give you the recipe from how I made it, if you would like the EXACT recipe, comment below.

So here's the ingredients:
I used two bags of salad, the regular-sized ones, not family sized
Some bacon ends, a few good slices chopped should do the trick
A chicken breast or two cooked and shredded
I used 4 slices of whole wheat bread, instead of white
6 green onions, chopped
1 cup parmesean cheese, shredded
3/4 cup mayo
3 tsp dijon mustard
1 1/2 T water
juice of one lemon

So I preheated the oven to 350, sprayed a baking sheet with vegetable oil spray, de-crusted the bread and ripped into bite-sized pieces, put on the baking sheet and sprayed with cooking spray, and baked for ten minutes, almost instant bread crumbs.

Then I took my rinsed and drained salad mix and put into a bowl, added the 6 green onions, tossed.  Added the bacon and the chicken, and tossed.  Added the parmesean, and tossed.  Then I made the dressing, which is the mayo, mustard, water and lemon juice.  I tossed the dressing thoroughly with the salad, and served with the  bread crumbs.

Overall we were very full, but ate the whole thing.  We had orange juice on the side!  It was super fast, easy, and just so delicious.

This is the cookbook that I found this recipe from, I got it from Costco a few years ago, I've actually only used it once, so I'm glad I got back into my cookbooks, I need to give Pinterest a break!

Get your salad on,

Meg
