This summer, why not prepare something quick and easy for the family to eat before (or during) some fun activities?

 

This recipe for Dairy-Free Chicken Caesar Sandwiches is a healthier twist on a tasty favourite. The dressing would work well as a Caesar salad dressing, too!

 

 

What you will need to make 4 sandwiches:

4 barbecued chicken breasts

8 leaves of romaine lettuce

8 slices of bread (gluten-free or sprouted is best)

2 large tomatoes, sliced

1 cup sunflower sprouts

1 serving of caesar dressing (see recipe, below)

 

Caesar Dressing

1⁄2 cup macadamia nuts


1/4 cup pine nuts


3-5 Medjool dates (depends on how sweet you like it)

1 tbsp. nutritional yeast


3-4 thumb sized cloves of garlic

1/4 tsp. Himalayan salt


1/4 tsp. cracked black pepper (or more to taste)


1/4 cup water

4-5 lemons, juiced

 

Place all ingredients in a high-powered blender and blend until smooth.

 

Sandwich Assembly:

  1. Slice chicken breast into thin slices and toss with 1/3 cup of the Caesar dressing.
  2. Layer the tomato, romaine lettuce, sunflower sprouts and chicken on 4 slices of bread.
  3. Season with salt and pepper, and top with remaining slices of bread.
