Homemade Keto Caesar Salad

Here’s how you can make a classic Caesar salad at home, with keto-friendly ingredients.  We add plenty of Parmesan cheese and dressing but skip the croutons in favor of crispy bacon.  If you’ve already got leftover chicken on hand, then you could make this for lunch in no time at all.

The dressing uses anchovy fillets, giving it that classic flavor profile,  but if you can’t stand them then feel free to skip it.  Another tip is that if you can find jarred anchovies then use those instead of canned because then you won’t have to worry about using up the leftover fillets right away.  You can simply reseal the jar.
