  • Grill



  • 1 Pound Flank Steak
  • 12 Ounces Romaine Lettuce
  • 1+½ Cups Cherry Tomatoes
  • ¼ Cup Caesar Dressing I used Primal Kitchen dairy-free caesar dressing.
  • ½ Lemon

Crispy Chickpeas

  • 2 Cups Chickpeas
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • ½ Teaspoon Salt
  • ¼ Teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • ¼ Teaspoon Black Pepper


  • Start by tossing the chickpeas with olive oil, salt, garlic powder, and black pepper until evenly coated.
  • Pour chickpeas into a warm skillet and cook for about 15 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Next, add steak to the grill and cook at about 400 degrees for 2-4 minutes on each side. (Depending on how you like your steak!)
  • Chop romaine lettuce and add to a large bowl. Add on cherry tomatoes, crispy chickpeas, sliced steak, lemon juice, and caesar dressing. Toss together until dressing is evenly coated on the lettuce. Enjoy the salad warm or chilled!


Expert Tips

  • If you're planning to store leftovers for later, add dressing to individual servings to avoid lettuce from getting soggy.
  • Since there's no cheese in this recipe, try adding cubed avocado for a similar creamy texture.
  • To make sure the lettuce isn't dry, toss the lettuce with the caesar dressing before adding on all the toppings.
