[Primal] Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad


Recommended Posts

Technically this could be paleo if you left out the cheese, but I feel like it's missing something without the cheese.



1 lb. assorted chicken (breasts and thighs both work great)

1 tbs. dijon mustard

1 tbs. fresh rosemary, finely chopped (or your favorite herb)

2 tbs. lemon juice

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 tbs. olive oil

Salt to taste


Butterfly the chicken breasts if using. Mix all the ingredients in a ziplock storage bag and set inside a bowl incase it leaks. Make sure the chicken is covered with the marinade. Put it in the fridge for 8-12 hours. I grilled mine over charcoal, but whatever cooking method you prefer for chicken would work: Pan fry, roast, indoor grill. Dice the cooked chicken into bite-sized pieces.



1/3 c. lemon juice

1/2 c. olive oil (I use light tasting because EVOO is too strong for me)

2 cloves garlic

1 tbs. dijon mustard

1 tbs. anchovy paste

1/4 c. parmesan cheese

Pinch of salt and pepper


Blend in blender until smooth and emulsified.


Chop romaine lettuce and place in a large bowl. Drizzle with enough dressing to coat and toss until covered. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and set warm grilled chicken on top.

"When I can no more stir my soul to move, and life is but the ashes of a fire; When I can but remember that my heart once used to live and love, long and aspire - O be thou then the first, the one thou art; Be thou the calling before all answering love, and in me wake hope, fear, boundless desire." - George MacDonald
