This grilled chicken Caesar salad recipe is very high in protein and is low in saturated fat. Caesar Salad is usually served with a poached egg on top so if you like this please include. We have used low fat natural yoghurt as the base for the dressing however for a really creamy dressing substitue this with Greek Yoghurt.
