Today’s lunch: Chicken caesar pita sandwich with homemade caesar dressing and fresh pineapple
It’s quite hard to find caesar salad dressing in Japan in my experience. Plus bottled dressings always have lots of artificial ingredients in them, so I always make our salad dressings myself (super easy. trust me.). I’d never made caesar dressing myself, but I recently found this recipe on Kitchen Stewardship and had to try it out (with a few tweaks).
It’s super easy to make (just throw everything in the blender and blend), and it really does taste like normal caesar dressing!
