Chicken Caesar Salad

I had a craving tonight!! Yes, for a fresh Caesar salad with homemade dressing and garden picked Romaine lettuce. So I made just that! Luckily, I have a stash of anchovies for this type of emergency situation.
Oh so good and pretty darn clean!
First, the dressing. Place 2 cloves of garlic, 5 anchovy fillets, 2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard, 2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice, 3 Tbsp. light mayo and 3 Tbsp. olive oil in a food processor. Pulse until smooth and stir in 1-2 Tbsp of water to thin out a bit.
Next, pick some garden fresh lettuce from your garden. If you dont have a garden, a grocery store will surely carry some Romaine lettuce. Dont forget to chop, wash and use a salad spinner to remove excess moisture (hate soggy lettuce!)
Add cooked chicken, Parmesan cheese (the good fancy kind!), favorite veggies, and light wasa crackers (or croutons)! Enjoy, either in front of your computer so you can multitask or in front of the TV(like a real American!).
