This recipe is a take on the classic BLT sandwich, with a twist. Crunchy greens play well with the tangy dressing. Great as a main dish or a side salad, also highly versatile based on availability of seasonal vegetables.

MasterFoods Professional Caesar Salad Dressing 2.6kg

Cooking Instructions:

  1. 1
    Preheat oven 160°C, spray kale leaves with olive oil and a sprinkling of sea salt. Bake for 5 to 8 minutes, or until they just start to crisp. Take out and set aside to cool.
  2. 2
    In a frying pan over medium heat, gently fry the prosciutto until crisp, then set aside.
  3. 3
    Spray the Turkish bread with olive oil. In the same frying pan, cook in batches until golden brown, adding a sprinkling of dried Italian herbs towards the end.
  4. 4
    In a large mixing bowl combine the kale, radicchio leaves, and tomatoes. Add enough dressing to evenly and lightly coat everything.
  5. 5
    Snap the crisped prosciutto into large shards and add the Turkish croutons – add a little extra Caesar and serve.

Tips

  1. 1
    Replace prosciutto with grilled haloumi and slices of avocado for a vegetarian option.
  2. 2
    Add some lemon zest as a garnish for extra zing, or some classic dukkha for crunch.
  3. 3
    To elevate the Turkish croutons even further, try adding a sprinkling of MasterFoods™ Garlic Powder and finely grated parmesan cheese to coat the torn bread croutons while still hot.
  4. 4
    Caesar dressing is also versatile for sandwiches, wraps, coating meats and roast vegetables.
