Recipe: Summer Cesar Salad

Summer cesar salad - a fresh and fruit filled dish. Let's eat up!

Summer cesar salad – a fresh and fruit filled dish. It’s perfect for summer BBQs, or as a side for lunch. Take out the croutons and replace them with berries, and for the bacon lovers, some hearty peaches or nectarines will add some punch. Let’s get cooking!

Ingredients

  • 2 heads of romaine lettuce
  • 2-3 tablespoons of cesar dressing
  • medium nectarine
  • 1/2 cup of blueberries
  • 1/3 cup of parmesan cheese

First, chop and wash the lettuce. Then, prep the rest of the ingredients. For the dressing, either make from scratch or pick up your favourite store brand. Slice the nectarine into thin, yet hearty slices. For the blueberries, wash and pat dry. Shred the parmesan cheese with the small grate size, so it’s light and fluffy.

Okay – time to build! Once you’re ready to eat (or about 10 minutes from eating) toss the chopped romaine in the dressing – mix well so it’s all coated evenly. Then, lay it out on a large flat dish. Top with the sliced nectarines, then lift the salad to give it some height, this will help the nectarines settle rather than weigh down the lettuce. Top with the blueberries, lifting again. Lastly, finish with the freshly shredded parmesan cheese.

Time to eat up!

The romaine will hold up for lunch then next day, yet it’s 100% better freshly made and dressed. It’s best if it’s all eaten at the time of serving.

Doesn’t this salad just look so bright and summery?!

This salad is gluten free (as long as your dressing is, of course!), and it’s a summer take on a traditional cesar salad. It’s become one of my favourites! Try it.

You can substitute the nectarine for a peach, the blueberries for blackberries, or any combo you wish.
