Chicken Caesar Salad Recipe, with Tomberries

Caesar salad is a popular dish in my house.  The lovely chicken with different dressings and vegetables give it different ways to eat.  Anchovies are not popular in this house, so I never use them, and I tend to use the same sort of things to make it.  I think there are dozens of caesar salad recipes, and I am convinced they all depend on the type of caesar salad dressing recipe.

Chicken Caesar Salad Recipe, with Tomberries

Prep Time 20 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Course Salad
Servings 6



  • 1 Medium Lettuce Washed.
  • 500 g Tomberries or Cherry Tomatoes Washed
  • 200 g Croutons Home Made, or Bought
  • 20 g Parmesan For shavings, or you can buy them ready to use.
  • 1 Medium Chicken. Pre- Cooked, with chicken diced.

Caesar Salad Dressing

  • 1 clove Garlic Crushed
  • 2 teaspoons Parmesan Ground or grated.
  • 4 - 5 tablespoons Mayonnaise
  • 1-2 tablespoon White wine vinegar Use if the dressing is too thick to pour.
  • 1 Medium Chive Finely chopped.
  • 1 teaspoon Peppercorn Ground, to taste.



  • Wash and make a bed with the lettuce.

  • Simply sprinkle on the chicken, croutons and parmesan shavings.

Caesar Salad Dressing

  • I was lazy and used a pre-bought, but if you don’t have a dressing to hand, make one. I wish I had made mine as the bought one was too vinegary for my taste.

  • Crush a garlic clove (or use ground garlic if you don’t have any).

  • Add two teaspoons of ground parmesan or 10g grated parmesan. If you like strong cheese, you can up this to double.

  • Mix it into 4 – 5 tablespoons of mayonnaise.

  • Add the finely chopped chives.

  • Grind a teaspoon of peppercorns into the dressing.

  • Add 1 – 2 tablespoons of white wine vinegar until the dressing is pourable.

  • Pour dressing over salad.


  • Add tomatoes or tomberries to the top of the salad.


Home made or bought dressing is fine.
It’s also nice with a few bits of cooked bacon added.
Tesco sell parmesan shavings in small pots which are perfect, but they do work out expensive that way I think
