Enjoy a fresh twist on the classic Caesar salad with the addition of tender asparagus spears. This recipe serves four and is perfect as a side dish or a light meal on its own.


  • 1 bunch asparagus, tough ends trimmed
  • 1 head romaine lettuce, washed and chopped
  • 1/2 cup Caesar dressing (store-bought or homemade)
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup croutons

  1. Preheat your grill or grill pan over medium-high heat. If using an outdoor grill, lightly oil the grates.
  2. Place the trimmed asparagus spears on the grill and cook for 4-5 minutes, turning occasionally, until tender and lightly charred. Remove from the grill and set aside to cool slightly.

  4. Drizzle the Caesar dressing over the salad, starting with half of the amount and adding more as needed to coat the ingredients evenly.
  5. Toss the salad gently to coat everything in the dressing.
  6. Sprinkle the grated Parmesan cheese over the salad and toss again.
  7. Taste the salad and season with salt and pepper if needed.
  8. Serve immediately as a side dish or add grilled chicken or shrimp for a complete meal.
  9. Enjoy your delicious Caesar salad with asparagus!
