Blackened Chicken Caesar

By Will Hanrahan September 23, 2019

The Caesar salad is almost synonymous with Italian food.  It was created by an Italian, but not in Italy.  It was invented by Caesar Cardini, an Italian immigrant who owned restaurants in the United States.  Caesar salads are almost always made with romaine lettuce, Parmesan cheese, egg, anchovies, and croutons.  We make our Blackened Chicken Caesar salad by layering blackened chicken on romaine lettuce with chopped bacon, grape tomatoes, and imported shaved Parmesan cheese.  We serve it with our citrus Caesar dressing made with lemon juice, anchovy, Parmesan, and egg.  It’s a delicious twist on a classic.
