Caesar salad takes on a Greek spin in this easy side salad! Crisp lettuce and a creamy dressing make this salad taste delicious! This salad pairs with any meal and is a great change from your typical tossed salad!
Growing up, our dinner table always had the main course, some sort of starch, two veggie side dishes, a big salad, bread, olives, and feta and we were only a family of 5.
I think Greek people love to feed others and always have more on their table just to make sure everyone is stuffed and that that there is always enough food just in case more people decide to show up.
I don’t know anyone else who grew up eating salads with dinner. Salads are something you only learn to appreciate when you are older and sometimes, not even then. I will be honest, only one out of my three kids will eagerly scoop up salad when I serve one.
That is totally fine because then there is more for me!
What Is A Caesar Salad?
A Caesar salad is a salad that is made with romaine lettuce and croutons and is topped with a dressing that is made with lemon juice, olive oil, egg, Worcestershire sauce, anchovies, garlic, Dijon mustard, Parmesan cheese, and black pepper.
Originally, this salad was prepared and served tableside. A took a few liberties and took my favorite Greek ingredients to transform this classic Caesar salad! Plus this recipe is so simple to prepare!

Homemade Caesar Salad Recipe Tips
I used packaged red and green leaf romaine lettuce because that is my preference, you can stick with the more traditional green lettuce if you prefer.
I do not use anchovy fillets in the dressing, but if you love anchovies, by all means, add them in!
I kept things especially simple and omitted croutons from this recipe, which of course, is not an option when you are keeping with the traditional Caesar salad! You can make homemade croutons, used store-bought or even use toasted pita bread!
You can easily make this a meal by topping your salad with grilled chicken, salmon, or shrimp!
