Healthier Grilled Caesar Salad Recipe

By David Zinczenko & Matt Goulding, Eat This

Char-grilled lettuce and a lighter vinaigrette dressing change everything.


Serves 4

You'll Need


  • 2 Tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 anchovies (soak in milk for 10 minutes if you want to mellow the flavor)
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 6–8 turns of a black- pepper mill
  • 1⁄2 cup olive oil


  • 4 hearts of romaine
  • 2 English muffins, split
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (6–8 oz each)
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • ¼ cup black or green olives, pitted and roughly chopped
  • ¼ cup sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
  • ¼ cup finely grated Parmesan

How to Make It

  • Preheat the grill.
  • Combine all the dressing ingredients except the oil in a food processor, and pulse to blend. With the motor running, slowly drizzle in the oil.
  • Cut the romaine down the middle lengthwise, leaving the root end intact so the leaves hold together.
  • Brush the romaine, English muffins, and chicken with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  • When the grill is hot, add the chicken and grill for 4 to 5 minutes per side until firm and caramelized. Remove the chicken and allow to rest.
  • Place the lettuce and English muffins on the grill. Cook the lettuce for 1 to 2 minutes, just enough to lightly char and wilt the leaves.
  • Cook the English muffins until brown and crispy.
  • Slice the chicken into thin strips.
  • Cut the muffins into bite-size pieces.
  • Arrange both, along with the olives and sun-dried tomatoes, over the individual lettuce halves. Drizzle with dressing and sprinkle with cheese.
