Garden Caesar Salad bursting with not only Parmesan cheese and homemade croutons but crispy bacon, fresh corn, avocados, tomatoes, cucumbers etc. and the most tender, juicy Lemon Basil Chicken all bathed in luscious WAY-better-than-store-bought Caesar Dressing. One of my favorite salads ever!
Who can deny a salad with freshly grated Parmesan Cheese sprinkled throughout the bed of greens and in the dressing? Or crispy, herbed croutons that you plan your entire forkful around just so you can taste that buttery crunch in every mouthful.
But you know what makes an already delicious salad into a meal-all-in-one and one of my favorite salads ever? The addition of tender, juicy, lemon basil infused chicken! I posted this chicken a while back as the star of my Roasted Garden Vegetable Linguine, and I couldn’t wait to spotlight it again – AKA eat it again. You can grill the chicken or stovetop it, either way, you’ll want to taste its lemon basil goodness in every bite. Move over croutons.
And then there is the addition of crispy bacon, creamy avocados, crunchy bell peppers, juicy tomatoes and fresh sweet corn right off the cob (I could eat fresh corn for days!) and/or whatever your veggies your heart desires – just don’t skip the sweet corn. With the creamy and the crunchy veggies all sprinkled with Parmesan and drizzled with Caesar Dressing you quite possibly might eat more vegetables than you have in one sitting in your entire life – and love every second of it.
Finally, every salad is only as good as its dressing. And this 5 minute homemade Caesar Salad Dressing is so far beyond good you will turn up your nose from every other grocery store version – or be strongly tempted too.
Hearty, satisfying, texture packed, flavor filled Garden Caesar Salad with Lemon Basil Chicken .
