1 slice of thick white bread, crusts trimmed and cut into smalled cubes
1 chicken breast, cooked
1 baby gem lettuce
1 tbsp Parmesan shavings
For the dressing…
2 tbsp mayonnaise
1 tbsp grated Parmesan
1 tsp lemon juice
Half a small clove garlic, crushed
1/8 tsp Dijon mustard
A few drops Tabasco sauce (optional)
Heat the olive oil in a small non-stick frying pan and add the cubes of bread. Fry, turning occasionally, until golden brown. Remove the croutons with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
In a bowl, combine all the dressing ingredients. Mix together the chicken and lettuce and toss with the caesar dressing.
Pack the shaved Parmesan and the croutons in a separate plastic container for your child to scatter over the salad at lunchtime.
