More About This Recipe

  • No matter how you spell it, this kebab salad isn't messing around.

    Okay, for the life of me I cannot spell Caesar. I mean, I can, but it takes me at least 7,254 attempts to get it right. Ceazer. Ceasar. Caezar. Caeser. Ceezer. Caazer. Ceeser. Breezer. Tweezer. Fleezer. Cheeser. Teaser. AND that's my head.


    However the wonk a tonk you spell it, this classic salad in kebab form is so mind-numbingly tasty, you won't even care if you ever spell anything right, ever again.

    Matter of fact, I think Julius Caesasserar himself PREFERS us to misspell it. And to wear a toga when we eat this awesome kebaby salad. That way we can put all of our focus into the succulent flavors of the grilled chicken, the crisp crunch of the romaine lettuce leaves, and the blissfully pungent cesrasersrsar dressing that so perfectly coats the salad. And the croutons and parmesan cheese, oh my heart.

    Oh he has nothing to do with this salad? Oh.

    Well, whatever. I'm STILL WEARING A TOGA.

    Let's make it! This is so simple. Grab some chicken breasts, romaine, some whole wheat bread slices, caesar dressing, garlic salt and olive oil.

    Cut up the chicken in a kebab-sized dice and coat it with half of the dressing. You can marinate this in the fridge for as long as you want. I did for about an hour.

    Cut up the bread into small squares. Brush with the oil and sprinkle with the garlic salt. Toast for about 10 minutes. Aaaand croutons, yo.

    Then you just skewer up your chicken on either metal or wooden skewers. Grill them up nicely on an outdoor or indoor grill for about 10 minutes total. Mmmmm.

    Then you just arrange it on a serving platter or plate! Lettuce leaves, chicken kebabs, croutons, the rest of the dressing, some fresh parmesan shavings, and a good grind of black pepper to seal the deal.

    So simple. So perfect. So CAESARLICOUS.

    Well, well. Look who can spell!
