To make a gluten-free Caesar salad, you'll need to substitute regular croutons with gluten-free croutons. You'll also need to make sure your Caesar salad dressing is gluten-free — the best way to be certain of that is to make your own using gluten-free ingredients.

Here's a Caesar dressing recipe that will be gluten-free if you use safe mayonnaise — see my list of gluten-free mayonnaise for your options.. If you'd prefer a store-bought dressing, check out my gluten-free salad dressing list for the possible choices.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Yield: Serves two


  • 1/3 head Romaine lettuce
  • 3/4 cup gluten-free croutons
  • 1/4 cup gluten-free Caesar salad dressing
  • 1/2 oz. anchovy fillets (optional — should be gluten-free, but verify)
  • Sea salt
  • Fresh ground pepper


Tear Romaine lettuce into bite-sized pieces and place in large salad mixing bowl.

Spoon Caesar salad dressing over lettuce, then toss until all pieces of lettuce are liberally covered with dressing. Add gluten-free croutons and anchovies (if desired), and toss until thoroughly mixed.

Split into two separate servings on salad plates and add sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste.
