Salad weather is coming! I’m so excited for the nice Spring and Summer weather to come. On sunny days, I feel more energized, and I love to eat salads. Today, I share with you my healthy version of the classic caesar salad.

Ingredients for 2 large caesar salads:

  • Salad of choice
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 small can of anchovies
  • 200g chicken filets
  • Pepper
  • Pine nuts
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Optional: croutons (I’ve gone for some small bread sticks with olive oil)

For a healthier salad dressing (optional)

  • 125g yogurt
  • 3tbsp olive oil
  • Pepper


  • Rinse and dry the salad.
  • Roast the pine nuts in pan on low heat. Stir them continuously. Once they turn brown, turn off the heat and let them cool down.
  • Cut the chicken filet in smaller pieces and bake until golden brown. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Take a large plate and place all the ingredients nicely.
  • Grate parmesan cheese to top off your caesar salad.
  • I’m not really a salad dressing person, but I like to add a healthy salad dressing sometimes. This is optional: mix in 125g of yogurt with 3tbsp of olive oil and season with pepper. Stir well until everything is fully combined and taste it. You might need to add a little bit more olive oil or pepper. It’s up to your taste.
