Sometimes I just love a big salad. Yummy croutons (My favorite part!), protein and of course an amazing dressing. One of our favorite salads to get when eating out is a Caesar. So, I wanted to make a lighter dinner option for this month’s easy dinner ideas series and I knew this would be the perfect way to end it!

A great salad at home starts with the dressing. If your dressing isn’t the best… that salad is just going to fall flat. I think that’s why a lot of people say they don’t like salads. Making your own dressing let’s you put your own twist on the flavors and it flat out just tastes good!

What makes this Caesar Salad smoked is the addition of smoked sardines to the dressing. I know, it sounds funny, but trust me… it is soo good! I saw this recipe on food network the other week and knew I had to make my own version!

What you add to your salad is completely up to you. I made ours classic Caesar. Romaine lettuce, croutons and Parmesan cheese. I seared off a chicken breast I seasoned with paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper and threw it in the oven to continue to cook. Super simple and threw everything together. Serve with some crusty bread and you’re good to go!
