19 Caesar Salad Recipes
Traditional Caesar salad is characterized by that tangy, so-good-that-it’s-addictive dressing made by combining egg, Worcestershire sauce, lemon, garlic, pepper, mustard, and anchovies— but that’s not the only way to do it. Different greens provide different flavor and you can add protein or additional citrus. If you’re crazy about Caesar salad, our variations will only add to your love of this classic dish!
Kale Buttermilk Caesar with Frizzled Eggs
Classic salads like Caesar don't go out of style, but they can certainly be updated. We swap romaine for lacinato kale and use tangy buttermilk in place of mayo. A second hit of anchovy in the hot oil gives the croutons extra savory depth as they toast in the pan.
Garlic-Sage Roasted Chicken with Kale and Radicchio Caesar Salad
This elevated take on your typical chicken Caesar salad utilizes nutrient-dense kale and pleasingly bitter raddichio in place of romaine to create a diversity of flavor and texture.
Caesar Salad with Bottarga
No anchovies here! The assertiveness of grated bottarga, a salted and cured fish roe, lends a sea-kissed flavor to an otherwise classic Caesar salad.
Arugula Salad with Caesar Vinaigrette
Toss fresh arugula leaves with our homemade Caesar Vinaigrette dressing and top with shaved Parmesan cheese for a simple but elegant salad.
Caesar-Crusted Chicken Salad
Add the flavor of Caesar dressing to crispy chicken breasts and top your greens with a simple mixture of cheese, lemon juice, and olive oil.
Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad
This salad dressing mimics the flavor of a typical Caesar but in a vinaigrette form.
Roast-Chicken Caesar Salad
Breaded chicken is cooked until golden and lightly roasted with romaine. The flavorful, creamy dressing has a yogurt base.
Grilled Caesar Salad
Romaine is brushed with olive oil-anchovy paste and grilled, then topped with curls of cheese, taking Caesar salad to a whole new level.
Lime Caesar Salad
Swap the lemon for lime juice for a fun twist! The overall flavor is ever so slightly altered for a fresher, less acidic take on the classic.
Radicchio Caesar Salad
Replace romaine with radicchio and baby spinach leaves for a greener, more bitter salad. It's great for leftovers, because the stronger greens won't wilt as much.
Kale Caesar Quinoa Salad with Roasted Chicken
This version is much more satisfying that your average Caesar salad. Skip the croutons and add walnuts for a crunch. Protein-rich quinoa and chicken make this salad hearty enough for a main.
Kale Caesar Salad with Grilled Shrimp
Kale Caesar Salad with Grilled Shrimp is just as tasty as it is nutritious. Healthy kale is combined with homemade Caesar dressing and fresh-off-the-grill shrimp for a hearty meal.

You can use a regular bagel, but we love the richness of creamy Caesar dressing and an everything bagel. Don't know what kind of dressing to purchase? We recommend Annie's.
Kale Caesar Salad
Using kale instead of romaine helps this recipe half the calories and double the vitamins of the average Caesar salad.
Caesar Brussels Sprouts Salad with Almonds
Sturdy shaved Brussels sprouts hold the crunchy almonds and a garlicky Parmesan vinaigrette without wilting. Serve with roast chicken or lamb.
Romaine, Celery, and Parmesan Salad
This streamlined Caesar salad gets extra crunch from celery. We left the anchovies out of the dressing to keep it kid friendly, but if you're looking for that extra salty, fishy flavor, then go ahead and add it in.
