We all love a classic Caesar salad. The tender chicken, crunchy croutons and creamy dressing – it’s the perfect combination of flavors and textures. The only problem with this classic is the fact that it contains the same amount of calories and fats as a full meal. That’s why we came up with a healthier, fitter version. You can still enjoy the classic taste without feeling guilty. This healthy spin on a classic dish will keep you satisfied and healthy, and your waist – intact!
Healthy Caesar Salad – 2 portions
Free-range chicken breast, skinless and boneless
Romaine or iceberg lettuce
2 ripe tomatoes
1 red onion
2 slices of sourdough bread
1 clove of garlic, minced
2 tablespoons of Greek yogurt
1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard
Salt and pepper
Sauce: Combine the yogurt, mustard, garlic and spices, and leave it in the fridge for 15 minutes to set.
Chicken: Cut the chicken into bite-size pieces, add salt and pepper, and either grill them or pan-fry until golden.
Croutons: Cut the bread into small pieces and roast them oil-free and butter-free in the oven (around 15 minutes at 300 degrees)
Salad: Chop the lettuce, slice the tomatoes and onion, and put them in a bowl. Toss the vegetables with the chicken and your homemade croutons and dressing. Now you can enjoy your favorite meal guilt-free!
