Chicken Caesar Salad Sliders.
Well, I kinda do.
I just feel like salads have their place, and that place should not ever be a main course. Except chicken salad. Chicken salad is fine.
Every once in a while, I will get the itch to make a salad for a main course. I'm always awake by midnight to have some s'mores. I just need more substance than what a salad can generally provide. My problem, however, is that I actually really love the flavors of some salads- Caesar in particular.
So I made it into a sandwich. I can't promise that I won't have s'mores later, but I can promise that it won't be because I'm feeling famished.
Mini ciabatta rolls
Shredded Parmesan cheese
First, let's talk about the proper ingredients in a chicken Caesar salad. The lettuce is important, and it's got to be Romaine.
You have to have shredded Parmesan cheese. Do not add grated Parmesan cheese to this salad. Just don't. That's good and all on some yummy pasta. It has no place in this salad.
You have to have croutons. Garlic is best.
You have to have chicken. Now, excuse me while I rant for a moment.
There is a right way and a wrong way to grill chicken. I will be doing a separate blog post on this in the near future...it's no big deal, but if you do it the wrong way, we can't be friends anymore.
Now for the sammich.
On both sides of the rolls, spread a bit of Caesar dressing. I used Kraft because I had Kraft. I'd suggest going a bit better quality. It's not that this is bad...it could just be better.
Add a layer of shredded parm.
