Charred Caesar Salad Avocado Tacos are the way that I make salad something I actually CRAVE! A simple caesar marinade for the chicken really brings out the classic flavors of the salad, and the char from the grill gives the tacos a nice, smoky flavor. Taco night just got a whole lot more interesting!
If you know me at all, you know that I am NOT a huge fan of salad. In preparation for a big upcoming trip, I have been forced to embrace the salad world…
I do this every year when I know we are going to be gone for a couple of weeks. I hate to limit myself on food when I travel, because half of the reasons I travel is to eat and drink.
Therefore, I try to lose the weight I know I will inevitably gain on the trip, so I don’t come back too bloated.
So salads are my friend, and I have to try to find new ways to enjoy them.
Therefore, this charred caesar salad avocado taco recipe was invented.
I actually like caesar salad, but it can get pretty boring eating it the same way time and time again.
Making the salad into tacos was a pure stroke of genius. Instead of just adding the salad to a taco shell, there’s a little bit more to these bad boys.
The chicken is marinated in a caesar dressing marinade, then it’s grilled along with the romaine hearts so everything gets a little smoke to it.
After that, you combine it all in a taco shell with some creamy avocado, crispy bacon, and some parmesan shavings (because who doesn’t love cheese?!).
It's a crunchy, crispy, savory, smoky, and fresh explosion in your mouth. Basically it’s an entire plated meal in a tortilla!
Seriously, if you are trying to love salad (or are weird and really love salad), this recipe is for Y-O-U.
