Chicken Caesar Salad with Avocado Dressing


My Caesar salad recipe has a bit of a twist—avocado dressing! It lends extra creaminess and a pop of healthy oil to this classic salad.

Tip: If you aren't a fan of anchovies, try adding just a bit at a time into your avocado dressing. They add complexity to flavor that's less fishy and more salty.
