Does it count as a salad if it’s a dip? If you can eat it with pita chips and if it has a layer of cream cheese? These are the things I ponder at night. The answer is no, its not actually a salad. But I’ve realized that I prefer dips to salads anyway, so that’s okay. This Chopped Chicken Caesar Salad Dip is AMAZING and I crave it like crrrrazy. It’s so tasty. Just like your favorite salad (which, let’s face it…caesar salad was never healthy to begin with) in a cheesy dip form. YES.
Layers of cream cheese mixed with caesar dressing, lettuce, chicken, parmesan cheese, and crushed croutons means DELICIOUS flavor and a dip gone in minutes. That’s just all there is to it.
Your favorite restaurant salad just became your favorite party dip. Make it for the Super Bowl, college football, Christmas, or any old saturday. Heck, Labor Day is coming up…MAKE IT FOR LABOR DAY! So yum, trust me.
Sure you can eat salad. But if you’re eating a delicious caesar salad it’s already pretty loaded with calories. Just go a step further and make it into a dip. Scoop it up with some pita chips and really enjoy yourself. I know we did! Chopped Caesar Chicken Salad Dip for the WINNNN.
