Whole30 Caesar Salad


Caesar Salad – I’m pretty much over the moon about this recipe. Crispy Chicken, romaine, and touches like avocado and grated egg yolk add some delicious and healthful fats that keep you from missing the cheese.

Whole30 Caesar Salad


Serves 4


  • Crispy Chicken (recipe below)
  • Caesar Dressing (recipe below)
  • 2 heads Romaine lettuce
  • Avocado chunks
  • Pear tomatoes, halved
  • Radish, sliced into thin coins
  • Eggs: boil for 9 minutes, then grate yolk on top

Crispy Chicken Ingredients

  • 2 or 3 breasts, skinless and boneless
  • 4 Tbsp olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp dried oregano
  • 5 cloves of garlic, peeled and crushed
  • Juice and zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  1. Mix all ingredients together
  2. Cut chicken on diagonal into strips then marinate overnight in refrigerator.
  3. Remove chicken from refrigerator. Turn on grill, oil it a bit, and heat to high. Grill chicken for 2-3 minutes per side. Serve.

Caesar Dressing Ingredients

  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and pressed
  • 2 anchovy fillets
  • ½ tsp compliant Dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper
  1. Crack egg into a mason jar. Using a hand blender, slowly add oil as you blend, pausing to let incorporate. Continue to slowly add more oil.
  2. Add garlic and anchovies, blend.
  3. Add Dijon, lemon juice, kosher salt and pepper, blend well.

Note: If you add oil too quickly, it will separate. Every time I make it, it’s a little different – so if I need to thicken it, I add 2 Tbsp of mayonnaise.

  1. I saw your video of this on IG today. Looks delicious I am doing my 1st whole 30 starting Oct 1st!!! I was thinking a garlic press might grating the egg yolks a little easier. But I can’t wait to make some of your yummie recipes. 😁😁😁

    • You want them to really be firm (not mushy) and it’s pretty simple with the grater and takes just a couple of minutes. Come over to check out our clean sweep holiday reset on instagram! Thanks for following.

  2. Oh my! This dressing is amazing. We felt guilty after eating it.

  3. Do you think it would OK to sub avocado oil? I get olive oil from my family’s farm in Greece and it is extremely strong so I’m afraid it would be too strong for a dressing and might even make it bitter.
