Different ways to use this Avocado Caesar Dressing:
Get your veggies in
We love a good veggie tray at our house, and this dressing makes a delicious accompaniment to fresh vegetables! Plus, at only 15 calories a tablespoon, you’re keeping it extra healthy!
A Classic Caesar Salad with a twist!
Try using this dressing for a not-so-classic Caesar salad! Caesar salads are simple, you’ll want fresh romaine lettuce, washed and chopped, grated parmesan cheese (the fresher the better in my opinion!), croutons, and of course, our avocado Caesar dressing! Top it off with some grilled chicken to make it a meal!
How to Make chicken salad
This will make about 3-4 servings of chicken salad
You’ll want about ¾ pound cooked chicken (about 3 cups cooked chopped chicken). You can use grilled chicken, rotisserie chicken, even canned chicken if that’s all you’ve got! My favorite is grilled chicken. Toss the chicken with almost the whole batch of dressing. I like to reserve a little of the dressing for topping my sandwich or wrap with.
If you want to make a smaller batch, you’ll want about 2-3 tablespoons of dressing for every 1 cup of cooked chopped chicken.
Make it a chicken salad sandwich
One of my favorite ways use this chicken salad is to make it a sandwich! I like to use toasted whole wheat or sourdough bread, but feel free to use whatever you like! When I’m assembling my sandwich I like to put a little spoonful of the avocado Caesar dressing we saved so I can really taste that savory, yummy dressing!
What you’ll want for your sandwich:
- Your already made chicken salad
- Two slices of your favorite bread—toasted!
- Sliced tomato
- Sliced avocado
- A little reserved avocado Caesar dressing
Use it for Lettuce wraps!
Sometimes I’m watching my carb intake and lettuce wraps are a fantastic way to eat this chicken salad! Just get your fresh lettuce and wrap it around your chicken salad. You can add extra veggies and avocado to these lettuce wraps too! Like the chicken salad sandwiches, I like to top them off with a little extra dressing, because its alllll about the dressing here.
