Using shredded Brussels sprouts adds a healthy and flavourful spin to this classic salad.


  • 5 cups (1.25 L) shredded BCfresh Brussels Sprouts (about 1.5 lb/750 g)
  • 1 lb (500 g) boneless skinless chicken
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) olive oil
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) freshly grated lemon zest
  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) each salt and pepper
  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) dried oregano
  • 8 baguette slices (each about ½ inch/1 cm thick)
  • 4 thick slices smoky bacon, cooked and chopped
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) grated Parmesan cheese
  • Lemon wedges
Caesar Dressing
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) Dijon mustard
  • 2 anchovies, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) each salt and pepper


  1. Preheat grill to medium heat; grease grate well. Toss chicken with 2 tbsp (30 mL) of the oil, Worcestershire sauce, lemon zest, salt, pepper and oregano; let marinate for 10 minutes.
  2. Grill chicken for 8 to 10 minutes per side or until cooked through and well-marked. Brush baguette slices with remaining oil; grill for 1 minute per side or until well-marked. Cut into quarters to make croutons.
  3. Caesar Dressing: Whisk together mayonnaise, lemon juice, oil, mustard, anchovies, garlic, salt and pepper until blended.
  4. Add Brussels sprouts to large bowl; toss with Caesar Dressing until well coated. Slice chicken; toss into salad along with bacon, croutons and Parmesan cheese. Serve with lemon wedges.

Note: Make quick work of shredding Brussels sprouts in a food processor using the slicing blade attachment.
