Servings: 4-6 as a main course
This take on Caesar salad is lighter and brighter than most. Lemon juice and zest punch up the vinaigrette, while a little mascarpone, instead of the traditional raw egg yolks, imparts richness. If you don’t have leftover roast chicken you can also use a store-bought rotisserie chicken.
Serve a quick and easy Lemon Parfait for dessert.

Best Caesar dressing recipe I've ever made. Quite tasty! I grilled chicken chicken breasts using a previous FC recipe that marinates chicken in Dijon & mayo and the flavors all went together perfectly. My husband loved it!
The dressing is fabulous. I had chicken breast to grill so my salad was more work. This reminded me why I don't make a caesar very often. There is a lot of time that goes into the dressing and croutons, which are necessary for a true home made caesar. Thankfully I have plenty for lunch today. Don't skip the lemon zest I think it makes the dressing!
I love this caesar recipe. I omit the lemon zest because I think its lemony enough, but if you like lemon a lot the zest can be nice too. I really like that this is a creamy caesar dressing with no egg or anchovy, but has that great caesar taste! This dressing is an easy favorite.
