I’ve partnered with Pick ‘n Save to bring you these AMAZING sandwiches!
Grilled, marinated chicken breasts and juicy pub burgers, all dressed up Southwest Caesar style! These sandwiches are loaded with grilled vegetables, bacon, avocado, and Parmesan cheese, and topped with a deliciously creamy Southwest Caesar dressing. Perfect for all your summer grilling!
Summer is here, which means time for grilling….and lots of it! I, for one, couldn’t be more excited. There’s just something about grilling that makes eating more exciting. The outdoors, the smell of charcoal, the kids playing in the backyard, the togetherness. It feels like the way meals should be. And in the summer months, it’s the way most of our meals are!
Of course, like all good food, there are memories attached to it. Whenever I smell charcoal burning, I’m instantly transported back to my dad’s company picnics – the games, the face painting, the ice cream truck, the giant grills packed full with hamburgers and hot dogs and sweet corn. It was an event we looked forward to all year long, and one we NEVER missed. (It was probably the only time in our lives we got cotton candy AND snow cones…..can you blame us??)
As an adult, my kids are sadly deprived of fun company picnics and the promise of cotton candy and snow cones, but one thing they’re not deprived of is summer grilling. They love it just as much as I do, and I love the idea of creating our own fun memories. Filled with lawn games and laughter and fireflies and s’mores…..and, of course, GREAT food.
Which leads me to these Southwest Caesar Sandwiches. All loaded up with grilled veggies and bacon and cheese and the most amazing Southwest Caesar dressing. It’s like a party in your mouth, which makes it the perfect sandwich for all your summer parties! It’s got something for everyone, and can be easily altered without sarificing any of the flavor. And what I love most about it is that it starts with the BEST marinated chicken breasts and delicious cheddar pub burgers from Pick ‘n Save! Which ups the flavor and saves you time. A win-win!
