Charred Caesar Salad Avocado Tacos Recipe

If you know me at all, you know that I am NOT a huge fan of salad. In preparation for a big upcoming trip, I have been forced to embrace the salad world…

I do this every year when I know we are going to be gone for a couple of weeks. I hate to limit myself on food when I travel, because half of the reasons I travel is to eat and drink.

Therefore, I try to lose the weight I know I will inevitably gain on the trip, so I don’t come back too bloated.

So salads are my friend, and I have to try to find new ways to enjoy them.

Therefore, this charred caesar salad avocado taco recipe was invented.

I actually like caesar salad, but it can get pretty boring eating it the same way time and time again.

Making the salad into tacos was a pure stroke of genius. Instead of just adding the salad to a taco shell, there’s a little bit more to these bad boys.

The chicken is marinated in a caesar dressing marinade, then it’s grilled along with the romaine hearts so everything gets a little smoke to it.

After that, you combine it all in a taco shell with some creamy avocado, crispy bacon, and some parmesan shavings (because who doesn’t love cheese?!).

It’s a crunchy, crispy, savory, smoky, and fresh explosion in your mouth. Basically it’s an entire plated meal in a tortilla!

Seriously, if you are trying to love salad (or are weird and really love salad), this recipe is for Y-O-U.

Charred Caesar Salad Avocado Tacos are the way that I make salad something I actually CRAVE! A simple caesar marinade for the chicken really brings out the classic flavors of the salad, and the char from the grill gives the tacos a nice, smoky flavor. Taco night just got a whole lot more interesting!

Ingredients
  

  • 2 Chicken Breast halved
  • 0.5 Caesar Salad Dressing
  • 3 Olive Oil
  • 3 Garlic minced
  • 2 Romaine Lettuce cut in half lengthwise
  • 2 Olive Oil
  • 0.5 Salt
  • 0.5 Black Pepper
  • 2 Sourdough Bread (thick)
  • 0.33 Caesar Salad Dressing
  • 1 Avocado diced
  • Lemon
  • 8 Whole Wheat Tortilla
  • 4 Bacon cooked and chopped

Instructions
 

  • Whisk together Caesar salad dressing, olive oil, and garlic for the chicken together in a medium bowl. Add chicken, turning to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours.
  • When ready to cook, preheat grill. Grease grill grates lightly with oil.

You may need to cook the chicken for more time depending on how thick your chicken is. The internal temperature of the chicken should be 165˚F when done.
  • Roughly chop lettuce and add to a medium bowl. Add Caesar dressing for the salad, avocado, and lemon juice. Stir to combine and set aside.
  • Chop grilled bread slices into small cubes.
  • Slice grilled chicken into strips.
  • To assemble, add chicken to the tortillas, dividing the meat evenly. Top with charred romaine salad, crispy bacon, and shaved parmesan cheese.
  • Serve immediately.
