Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad

Whenever we're invited to potlucks, I'm always asked to bring a salad because people know it's one of my specialties. This dish is especially good on summer days when it's too hot to cook on the stove. -Deb Weisberger Mullett Lake, Michigan

    This is, absolutely, the best marinade that I have used for grilling chicken. It's also very good for doing bone-in chicken breast and if you are having guests over for dinner you can do beef and chicken kabobs. Allow them to marinate at least 24 hours

    This was an excellent salad. It was perfect for a warm summer evening dinner. I will definitely make this again.

    Never been a fan of caesar salad but my husband likes it so I tried this recipe and the whole family loves it. The taste of the marinated chicken is wonderful.

    This is a great marinade. The ingredients are easy to remember and can easily be doubled or halved. It is definitely a keeper.
