Chicken Caesar Review: Crispers

This is the first time I'm reviewing a salad at a place that actually specializes in the things, so expectations were quite high. Their large Caesar Salad, which costs $6.95 with chicken added, contains Romaine lettuce, marinated chicken breast, grape tomatoes, seasoned croutons, Parmesan cheese and Caesar dressing.

Well, it should go without saying for a place like this, but I'll say it anyway: They actually tossed this salad. The dressing, which was a very nice balance between not-too-strong and not-too weak, was evenly distributed throughout. On top was sprinkled fresh grated cheese and a sliced chicken breast. These strips require further cutting, but they are incredibly tender thus making this task a breeze. Both the lettuce and tomatoes are fresh, and the croutons are also freshly made and crunchy.

There really isn't a downside to this salad. Crispers does their reputation right by preparing a proper Chicken Caesar, and my thanks goes out to them for it.
