Sweet and savoury combine in this surprising spin on a Caesar salad. Making your croutons is an easy, healthier option

Ingredients

Skinless chicken breast

450 g, (500g fat trimmed)

Olive oil

2 tsp

Multigrain bread roll

97 g, cape seed, cut into 8 slices

Cheddar cheese

60 g, (1/2 cup) grated

Baby spinach leaves

120 g, (4 cups)

Cos lettuce

3 cup(s), or green oak lettuce

Apple

2 small, green, quartered and sliced thinly

Celery

2 individual, stalks, thinly sliced

Red onion

½ small, thinly sliced

Caesar dressing

4 tbs

Instructions

  1. Slice chicken in half horizontally. Heat oil a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook chicken for 2–3 minutes each side or until cooked through. Thinly slice.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat grill on high. Grill bread on both sides until lightly toasted. Sprinkle 1 side of each piece with cheddar and grill for 1 minute or until cheddar melts and croutons are golden.
  3. Place spinach, lettuce, apple, celery, onion and sliced chicken in a large bowl. Toss gently to combine. Drizzle salad with dressing and serve with cheddar croutons.

Notes

TIP: You can use ¼ cup (60ml) fat-free balsamic vinegar dressing instead of caesar dressing.
