Fat Free 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 a sumac, which I advise you to use it, put on some spice, curry or lemon thyme …. and enjoy! 🙂
2 onions or 1 red onion
1 red pepper
sumac, salt & garlic powder
Arugula & Lettuce
Vegetables – tomatoes, grated carrot
Optionally: cottage cheese or mozzarella
1 dcl yoghurt sauce
1/2 squeezed lemon
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 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.
