Southwestern Caesar Salad with Chipotle Dressing

Total Time

I love the creamy, smokey flavor of this dressing. Sometimes I add grilled chicken or other meat or fish to this salad for a complete meal. My husband kept saying how good the salad was when he tried it for the first time...and so will you.

Absolutely delicious! Had it for a party with chili and Mexican stuffed potatoes, Mexican cornbread (on here and also fab). It was really tasty and all the flavors and textures were there as previously stated. Thank you!!! Not sure about Amber's rating...she refers to "fries". Think it is possibly an error. The salad is GREAT!

our family found this really bland.. we followed the recipe verbatim, but the 'fries' shrunk and just didn't have the umph we had hoped for. thanks.. I am ALWAYS trying to get my boys to eat more veggies.

This was an excellent salad! Smoky, sweet, spicy and crunchy! I added a few shakes of garlic powder and cumin to the dressing and added leftover grilled chicken to the salad. I agree with others that black beans and avocado are a must. Thanks for posting a new favorite! EDITED: The desssing is now also our favorite dip with tostitos!
