I remember when Caesar Salad became popular, or at least popular to me. It was probably about 17 year ago, when I was working out of an office. We, girls, would go out to lunch, and I would think I was eating so healthfully because I had a caesar salad with chicken. Oh, the innocence of it all. I was living in a dream land that my taste buds loved. Then I found out a caesar salad could have 1200 calories, what, what? Say it isn’t so.

It is just a bunch of lettuce with a little cheese. How in the world can that be so many calories? My heart was torn in two. The culprit is the dressing. I sadly gave up caesar salads. Then a few years later, I saw a chef on TV grilling romaine. Oh, this is promising. My wheels started spinning and grilled romaine quickly became a staple on our table. While, I absolutely adore grilled romaine, it still wasn’t quite a replacement for a caesar salad.

One day I finally got smart, yup it took a while, and made a caesar salad paste to put on the romaine before grilling. Now that was some serious yumminess. Finally 17 years later, I was a little slow on the up take, I decided to marinade the chicken and romaine in the caesar dressing and then grilled it. This is the winner, winner, chicken dinner.

This is a lower calorie, lower fat version with better for you ingredients. Surprise, surprise, I don’t use olive oil. Instead I used Mazola® Corn Oil. I know what you are thinking. You have always heard olive oil was better to use. A recent study published in the Journal of Clinical Lipidology found that corn oil helps lower cholesterol more than extra virgin olive oil! It also has a high smoke point, meaning it is a great all-purpose cooking oil you can use for everything from grilling to sautéing, to even baking. Mazola Corn Oil has a neutral flavor, so it brings out the flavors of the other ingredients. To find out more about the benefits of cooking with corn oil, visit Mazola.com.

So fire up the grill to make your next Caesar Salad. Better yet, invite your friends and family over. Make the kebabs ahead of time so you can throw them on the grill. They cook in just a few minutes. Your friends will be amazed at your cooking prowess and fully believe this is the best Chicken Caesar Salad they ever had.  I bet this salad is going to go into heavy rotation on your summer dinner menu.  Plus you never have to have a 1200 calorie Caesar salad again.

  2. we LOVE grilling our romaine - but these kabobs are just genius - Caesar salad is one of our go to summer meals, and we make one at least twice a week, but kabob style is SO much more fun
