How To Make Loaded Caesar Wedge Salad
This salad couldn't be easier to make and it's ready to enjoy in just 20 minutes! Follow the five simple steps below.
To get started, bring a pot of water to a boil and hard boil the eggs for 8 to 10 minutes. Peel, dice and set aside.
In the meantime, in a non-stick pan heat the avocado oil over a medium high heat. Sauté the diced chicken for 3 to 5 minutes until crispy and golden. Season with a pinch of sea salt and black pepper.
Add the chopped bacon to the pan and cook for a few minutes until crispy. Set aside.
Now, we'll make the salad dressing. In a blender or food processor combine the mayonnaise, olive oil, anchovies, lemon juice, garlic and Worcestershire sauce. Blend until cream any season to taste with salt and black pepper. Optionally, adjust the acidity to your taste by adding a few extra drops of lemon juice.
Cut wedges out of the iceberg lettuce and arrange them on serving plates. Top each wedge with chicken, bacon, cherry tomatoes and chopped eggs. Add dollops of the salad dressing on top and optionally garnish with shaved parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
You can store the individual ingredients on this recipe in the fridge and put it all together when you're ready to eat. The dressing, chicken and bacon will keep for up to a week refrigerated in an air tight container.

I’m new to keto & really appreciate your site! As I am a pescatarian, would it be ok to sub shrimp or tuna for the chicken/bacon? Thanks!
Hi Joni, thank you for the kind words! Yes, you can definitely substitute the seafood for other proteins. You can also just skip the recipes that contain those ingredients and re-use others if you prefer 🙂
