  • Chicken Caesar Salad

A salad that is very often found on our menu because of its speed of preparation, simplicity, the multitude of vitamins and colorful that it brings to the table, and of course, because it is really refined! I make it as a main meal, in huge bowls, but it can also serve as a lunch package for work, appetizers as party food. If you don’t have sumac, which I advise you to use, put on some spice, curry or lemon thyme …. and enjoy! 🙂


2 onions or 1 red onion 

1 red pepper 

chicken breast

sumac, salt & garlic powder 

Arugula & Lettuce

Vegetables – tomatoes, grated carrot 

Optionally: cottage cheese or mozzarella 

2oz yoghurt sauce

1/2 squeezed lemon

4 tablespoons olive oil

A tablespoon mayonnaise

some salt and chilli, chopped chives or other herbs


Step 1: Cut the chicken breast into small pieces or strips. Roll in salt and lots of powder and garlic powder. Sumak really makes a big difference, while the lemon gives it a special refreshing taste to the whole salad. 

Step 2: Cook the meat briefly on a low heat olive oil for less than eight minutes. The meat should remain very juicy but it must be roasted.

Step 3: Chop the onions and peppers very nicely and place in a bowl. Peel and finely chop the tomatoes or vegetables as desired and toss in a bowl. Put chicken in it as well. Stir everything well. Make a sauce of the above ingredients. Try it to see if something is missing. 

Step 4: Washed salad – I prefer garden radish or arugula, what I find in the garden, but put whatever salad you want in the bowl as well. Pour all over the sauce and add more olive oil or salt as desired. Don’t freak out about mayonnaise in a salad, you’ll have nothing from a tablespoon to a whole bowl.

Have leftover turkey? No worries at all here is how you can use it the best way:

  • Salad with Turkey


  • 20 oz turkey breast (or chicken breast)
  • 1 lettuce
  • 1 tablespoon of ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon of mustard
  • 1 teaspoon of honey
  • 3 oz mini mozzarella
  • 4 oz of canned corn
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • aceto balsamico
  • salt, pepper


Cut the chicken breast into thicker strips (about 1 inch wide).

In a bowl add ketchup, honey, mustard, a tablespoon of olive oil, pepper and salt, mix, add the meat, cover and let marinate for about 30 minutes. In the meantime, wash the salad, cut it and add corn and mozzarella.

I also added mushrooms. Cut them into quarters, put them on a hot, dry pan, salted them to drain the water and bake them until they turn yellow. Then I cooled them down a bit and added them to the salad.

In the absence of mozzarella and excess hard, cooked cheese from the market, I chopped the latter into cubes and also added it to the salad 🙂

In a bowl, make a dressing of 2-3 tablespoons of aceto balsamic, 1 tablespoon of olive (or sunflower) oil, some salt and pepper. Mix and pour over salad.

Roast the meat briefly on a hot, dry, uncooked pan and serve over the salad.
