Fully Loaded Caesar Salad Recipe


Ingredients

Directions

  1. Boil your eggs in water for 12 minutes. (Read our tips below for how to get peelable eggs!)
  2. While they’re cooking, prepare your veggies. Thinly slice the red onion, cut the grape tomatoes in half, and slice or chop an avocado. 
  3. Assemble the Caesar Salad Kit, adding in the toppings and Caesar dressing. 
  4. Once the hard-boiled eggs have cooled, peel them and slice in half, lengthwise.
  5. Top your salad with halves of hard-boiled eggs, red onion, halved tomatoes, and sliced avocados. Enjoy!

We know, the Caesar Salad is pretty perfect on its own. And yet, people just keep adding new stuff to it to make it even better! We’ve tried our own combinations and compared notes, and we think we’ve finally hit on just the right toppings to take a Caesar Salad over the top and warrant the title “Fully Loaded.” 

In addition to the classic ingredients in our Caesar Chopped Kit—romaine, shredded parmesan cheese, and crunchy garlic and cheese crouton crumbles—you’re going to be adding red onion, grape tomatoes, sliced avocado, and hard-boiled eggs. This is a photo-worthy level salad, here. Enjoy!

Our Unofficial Tips on Getting Peelable Hard-Boiled Eggs

There are as many tips for peelable hard-boiled eggs as there are eggs in a carton.

Try these ideas to get that elusive easy peel:

  1. Cold start
    Instead of placing the raw eggs into already boiling water, try putting them in the pot at the same time that you’re filling it with water.  
  2. Add vinegar to the water
    Just a splash of vinegar to the boiling water is said to soften the shells so they’re more peelable.
  3. Give them the slightest crack before placing in water
    Ask any Polish grandma, the tiniest tap on the raw egg is said to let in a small amount of water, separating the shell from the egg white. Don’t go too crazy, though, because a full crack will result in oozing egginess into your water.
  4. End with an ice bath
    Some people swear by placing the boiled eggs into a bowl with ice and water, while others found better results letting the eggs cool slowly on the counter.
