  • Summary

    A fresh take on a salad classic. Grilling the romaine lettuce, bread or rolls and chicken for a Caesar Salad enhances the salad's flavor beautifully. A lightened up creamy Caesar dressing tops it all off.The recipe instructs serial grilling of the chicken, bread and lettuce. The lettuce and bread may be grilled at the same time though attention needs to be paid to ensure no charring. I found doing them separately was easiest. A form of French bread is a perfect addition for the croutons. Thick slices of a baguette for gluten-eaters and Udi's gluten-free French rolls or slices of Udi's baguette work great (the baguette is slender so more slices will be needed), or another gluten-free equivalent.The time to heat the grill is not included in the overall recipe time.

    • 1/3 cup Light Sour Cream
    • 1 tablespoon Lemon Juice
    • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil

    • 1 teaspoon Black Pepper , preferably freshly ground
    • 1/4 teaspoon Kosher Salt

    • 2-3 teaspoon mixed Fresh Herbs (I used lemon thyme, oregano, chives and a bit of rosemary; use the flavors you love best), diced
    • 1 pound boneless , skinless Chicken Breasts, usually 2 breasts per pound
    • 3 Romaine Lettuce Hearts (they are usually sold in packages of 3)
    • For Gluten-eaters: 4-6 thick slices of French Bread (baguette)
    • For Gluten-free eaters: 4 Udi’s French Dinner rolls (or equivalent gluten-free bread option)
