I love easy salads & this Thai inspired caesar caught my eye on House of The recipe uses easy ingredients to make a garlicky dressing with a peanut twist. The fish sauce replaces the Worcestershire and anchovies in the original recipe

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Thinly slice half a white onion and marinate it with the Italian dressing.
  2. Hard boil 4 eggs. Cool, then peel the eggs. Separate the yolks from the whites. (Chop the whites up and add them to the salad.).
  3. Make the dressing: Mash the egg yolks in a bowl. Add the garlic, peanut butter, mayonnaise, water, fish sauce, and Italian dressing. Stir well to combine. It should be a smooth sauce, with very little lumps. Add the marinated onions to the dressing. Add in the sugar, a little at a time, until it reaches the desired balance of sweet to tart.
  4. Lightly toss the lettuce, egg whites, cilantro, and fried won ton noodles together with the dressing. Add the chicken if using.
  5. Plate on serving plates & drizzle with the dressing.

This was such a tasty salad. And after the scorching hot day we had today, I didn't feel like heating the house further by heating up something in the oven. So I made this salad in the afternoon and kept it in the fridge to chill. The dressing was simply wonderful with a light peanutty taste that went quite well with all the salad ingredients. I know I'll make this often, especially during the hotter summer months when slaving over a hot stove is just not in the cards. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Susie D. We loved it!
