I like this recipe when I want a fattening Caesar salad without the fat and salt. The bell pepper adds some additional color and flavor. You can top the salad with nutritional yeast for a cheesy flavour. And air-fried potato cubes or roasted chickpeas add a change in texture. I have adjusted this recipe to be oil and fat free.
You can buy pre-washed romaine lettuce in packages of three. The dressing makes enough to dress three salads. And one can of chickpeas can be divided into three parts as well. I eat this giant salad over three consecutive days.
Ingredients for Salad (1 serving)
Ingredients for the Dressing (3 servings)
*Note: Using a plastic knife to cut the Romaine stops it from going brown. Or hand ripping the lettuce also can reduce oxidation. If you will be eating this salad over several days, prepare you lettuce this way, but store it separate from the dressing until you are ready to serve.

These are a great addition to your salad. They add extra protein and are tasty on their own. Use them on your salad or make this recipe for people that love snacking on nuts. It's a healthy low-calorie alternative.
When they are completely cool, store them in an airtight container at room temperature so they don’t get soggy.
