Buffalo Chicken Caesar Salad

Doreen Fish


This is a combination of my Caesar Salad and my Buffalo Wing recipe. In this case I used chicken breasts.My daughter who is now grown and loves wings went through a stage where she hated wings so I created this recipe for her so when we were having wings she wasn't left out.This is the best Caesar Salad ever!!!...been making this for over 20 years and this is a favorite of my husband and I!!!
I especially love that I can throw all the dressing ingredients in my blender!!!
Looks complicated but super easy!!
The dressing keeps well in the fridge for at least a week.

1 Tsp apple cider vinegar
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 tbsp or more of ketchup (1 tbsp for hot ,3 tbsps for mild and leave ketchup out for inferno)
Mix sauce ingredients and warm to simmer over low heat. Toss chicken pieces until well coated.. This can be done last just before assembling the salad.
Caesar salad Dressing:
In a blender process 1/4 cup of the olive oil with eggs until creamy. Set the 3/4 cup of oil aside.Add remaining ingredients and blend together. Slowly add the 3/4 cup of oil while still blending. Blend till thick and creamy.

Now get ready to serve!!!
Toss the lettuce with the dressing (using more or less as you like to taste reserving some for topping), croutons, bacon bits and mushrooms. Divide the lettuce between 4 plates and top with chicken pieces.Drizzle remaining dressing over chicken and serve. This is so delicious!!
