A Caesar Salad Cardini would go mad for!

The Paleo Caesar 2.0
I absolutely adore all types of salads and am constantly experimenting with well known classics.
This is set to be my favourite one yet!


For the salad:
1 large sweet potato
3 slices of turkey bacon (or regular if you prefer)
1 head of cos / romaine lettuce
Small handful of pine nuts
Himalayan pink salt & cracked black pepper
1 tsp Coconut oil
1 tbsp Garlic & Chilli Oil

For the dressing:
4 tbsp dark tahini
4 tbsp water
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tsp whole grain mustard
1 clove of fresh garlic, minced


  1. Preheat the oven to 220°c/428°F.
  2. Cut the sweet potato into chunks leaving the skin on, toss in 1 tbsp of Garlic & Chilli Oil, season with salt and pepper.
  3. Bake the sweet potato for 10 minutes before flipping and cooking for a further 10-15 minutes until crispy and cooked through.
  4. While the sweet potato is cooking, heat a griddle pan with 1 tsp of coconut oil and cook the turkey.
