Raw Vegan Caesar Salad

I love to make this Raw Vegan Caesar Salad on a hot Summer night and call it dinner!

I’m not a fan of heavy creamy dressing but I do love lots of flavor and the cheesy garlic taste of this version of Caesar Salad takes it to the top!  If you want to add some meat protein I suggest using organic, boneless, skinless chicken breasts.   I like to take organic chicken breasts and slice them into thin cutlets (horizontally) for two reasons, one they cook up much faster and two they are more tender.  Add your choice seasonings ( I like a combination of garlic powder, parsley, Italian seasoning, cumin, salt & pepper) and toss them in a bowl to coat with some softened coconut oil.  Heat up a cast iron pan and lightly brown on each side.

**TIP** I make a bunch of chicken and save it for lunches or dinner thru the week!
