Baby Kale and Chicken Caesar
As far as salads go, Caesar is indisputably king, and this tasty rendition is proof. The shortcut dressing relies on mayonnaise rather than egg yolk for an easier swap, and packs a generous amount of classic flavor thanks to Parmesan, Dijon, anchovies, and garlic. You’ll toss this mixture with crunchy sliced Brussels sprouts and baby kale, plus cooked chicken to make it an extra satisfying dish. The homemade croutons just might be the star of the show. Soft white sandwich bread allows each piece to be well-coated with olive oil, meaning they roast to crisp perfection. P.S. While this recipe makes for a standout dinner, it also works as a side salad—keep the chicken or replace it with avocado or shrimp.
