Southwest Grilled Chicken Caesar

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/grilled_chicken_caesar.html

From EatingWell:  The Simple Art of EatingWell

In this Southwestern spin on the classic Caesar salad, avocado stands in for raw egg and some of the oil in this rich, creamy dressing. Grilled spice-rubbed chicken makes it satisfying.

4 servings, about 3 cups each | Active Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Preheat grill to high.
  2. Pound chicken breasts between 2 pieces of plastic wrap with a meat mallet to an even 3/4-inch thickness. Combine 1 teaspoon each cumin and chili powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt; sprinkle on the chicken.
  3. Oil the grill rack (see Tips). Grill the chicken until no longer pink, 3 to 4 minutes per side.
  4. Puree half the avocado, 1/4 cup cheese, anchovies, water, lemon juice, oil, garlic, pepper and the remaining cumin, chili powder and salt in a food processor until smooth. Gently toss with romaine, croutons, the remaining avocado and cheese in a large bowl. Serve topped with the grilled chicken.
