Chicken Caesar Salad #PropSwap Reveal

prop swap 2013

I’m Participating in theFood Blogger Prop Swap, hosted by Alyssa of www.EverydayMaven.com and Faith of www.AnEdibleMosaic.com and today is reveal day.

Food Blogger Prop Swap
The prop swap is a fun way to connect with new food bloggers and pass on gently used and loved food blogging props to another food blogger in our community.

Every FBPS participant filled a USPS Medium Flat Rate Priority Mail Box with items they already had and wanted to pass on, so there is no need to buy anything new.

I sent mine out to Patti from Comfy Cook at http://www.comfycook.com/ and I can’t wait to see what she did with the swap items! She makes her dishes look so beautiful I can’t imagine how she will use what I sent to her.

I was lucky enough to get Heather aka Girlichef from http://www.girlichef.com/ . Heather must be a mind reader on top of her great cooking and baking talents (you need to see her bread skills) because she sent 2 items I really needed. The soup crocks matched the pattern from plates I had when I first started out on my own. Timeless actually.

Wooden salad bowls…I love wooden salad bowls but I never owned any. Those are something I think about as I make a salad. You know after the dishes get washed and put away so does my memory of wanting to get wooden bowls.

Okay now I had the bowls, I needed to make a salad. Oh the soup crocks will get their turn at the first cold snap. Caesar Salad seemed appropriate for the occasion. I topped it with chicken. Caesar Salad is so good with homemade dressing.

Chicken Caesar Salad (makes one salad)

Ingredients

  • 1 4-ounce grilled chicken breast
  • 2 cups chopped romaine lettuce or mixed greens
  • 1 Tablespoon grated parmesan cheese
  • 6 to 8 cherry or grape tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup croutons
  • Dressing (recipe follows)

Place lettuce in a serving bowl or on a plate. Cut chicken diagonally and place across the salad. Add tomatoes and croutons. Sprinkle with cheese. Drizzle with dressing.

Dressing

    Ingredients

  • 1 cup pasteurized liquid eggs
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped garlic
  • 2 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons anchovies, rinsed and chopped
  • 2 teaspoons pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped parsley
  • 2 cups olive oil

Place all the ingredients in a blender. Blend on low for 20-25 seconds then blend on high for 20-25 seconds. You want to make sure your dressing emulsifies and won’t separate. Let it set in the blender for about a minute, if it starts to separate blend for an additional 20 seconds.
I didn’t add any salt because I feel the anchovies, parm cheese and Worcestershire contribute enough. If you’d like to reduce the salt even more you can use low-sodium soy sauce instead of Worcestershire.
