Grilled Chicken and Arugula Caesar Salad

Grilled chicken and arugula Caesar Salad

Specialty cooking magazines lure me in every time.  I admit it.  Sometimes I am happy with my purchase and sometimes not.  One that never disappoints me are the ones that are produced by Fine Cooking and my favorite place to find them is Lowe’s.  How else am I supposed to amuse myself while my husband wanders in Stepford Wife like wonder through the aisles?  We can never check out without me tossing a cooking magazine on top of the nails, pipes, and paint.  

Grilled Chicken and Arugula Caesar Salad with Grilled Croutons

My recent acquisition was Fine Cooking Grilling 2012.  

I flipped through the appetizer section (unfortunately, I rarely get my act together enough to prepare appetizers AND a meal), and ended up at salads.  I found the Grilled Chicken and Arugula Caesar Salad with Grilled Croutons.   This was so good and easy!  It was perfect for a lazy Sunday afternoon, and even easy enough for a weeknight dinner. 

If you try it, let me know what you think!

    Well. It’s like the cooking magazine is your reward for getting through the Lowe’s shopping experience! I totally get it.

    My Lowes also has excellent lamps and light fixtures. I also love the wallpaper and borders. It could get pretty expensive for your husband if you take up adding more than just a couple of cooking magazines!

    who has the time and/or desire to make appetizers in addition to the main course for any random night? not this gal. i think your salad creation looks grand.

    We grilled romaine for the first time earlier this year. I really liked it, but unfortunately no one else in my family did. Your presentation is lovely. I’m wishing I had it in front of my tonight!

    I’m a sucker for that too. I’d probably by a copy of Cosmopolitan if it included “Special Grilling Issue” on the cover, ha ha.

    Fine Cooking always has great recipes and this salad looks like it is no exception. Thanks for sharing it with Souper Sundays and remembering to even email it! ;-)
