BBQ Prawn Caesar Salad

Take your caesar salad to the next level with this BBQ Prawn Caesar Salad. Serve it on its own, as a side, or in lettuce cups as an appetiser.

A Caesar Salad is only as good as its ingredients and that’s why we have all been disappointed at some stage or another when ordering it at a café. Why do I say that? Because it is important to use the freshest ingredients when making this BBQ Prawn Caesar Salad. Use fresh crispy lettuce, organic eggs and corn, rindless middle bacon, fresh prawns (not frozen) and the best quality extra virgin olive oil you can purchase and all of a sudden this humble little salad becomes a gourmet meal.
