The perfect chicken caesar salad

Caesar salad makes a wonderful midweek meal and is also great for no-fuss entertaining. You can prepare it all in advance, then assemble it when you’re ready to serve. Donal Skehan’s simple recipe will show you just how easy it is.
We’ve also got a garlicky chicken caesar salad too, if you fancy a bit of garlic oomph.

The anchovies give this dressing a wonderful salty savoury tang. If you haven’t come across a caesar dressing recipe before, anchovies might seem odd but, really, don’t skimp on them – they add a fantastic depth of flavour.
I make sourdough croutons because I like the taste, but you could use a baguette or any chunky bread – just make sure it’s not too stale or the cubes will turn rock hard after toasting.
For a true caesar salad, cos lettuce (also called romaine) is the chief leaf. It’s got a great crunch and provides much-needed refreshment among the other salty ingredients.
