WaI hate to break this to you but a traditional Caesar Salad is not always the healthiest choice! With just lettuce leaves as a base, there’s just not enough colour and vegetation to qualify (in my book!) and that’s without the deep-fried croutons or salty, often processed, dressing it arrives doused in. Now, that’s not to say you can’t make our own, far more nutritious version with this healthy Caesar salad makeover.

Healthy Caesar Salad

Serves 4

  • 1 small cos lettuce; chopped
  • 1 bag darker green/red lettuce varieties
  • 1 small tin sweetcorn
  • 1/2 cucumber, cut into chunks
  • 2 carrots, grated
  • small handful walnuts, broken into small pieces
  • Grated Parmesan
  • 1 avocado, cubed
  • Toasted pitta chips (optional)
  • 2 chicken breasts; cut into strips or Tofu cubes; marinated in salt/pepper and GENTLY pan-fried in olive oil

    Healthy Caesar Salad Dressing

  • 1 heaped tablespoon Greek yoghurt
  • 1 tbsp white/red wine or Apple Cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp Balsamic vinegar
  • ½ tsp honey or maple syrup
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 4 tbsp Olive oil
  • Salt & Pepper


Here’s how to make up your Healthy Caesar Salad

    • Mix all the dressing ingredients in a glass jar and shake well
    • Arrange the salad ingredients onto a serving platter, and top with Chicken or Tofu. Drizzle a generous amount of the dressing and pita croutons (if using) and serve immediately
