Roasted Garlic Asiago Chicken Caesar Salad

 A chance find in downtown Plymouth — I decided to see if I could find a new work time lunch place. The lunch special “Roasted Garlic Asiago Chicken Caesar Salad” on their sidewalk board drew my rumbling tummy in.

For starters, I definitely felt like an outsider. The minute I walked in, what few heads were in the cafe swiveled sharply in my direction. The single waitress was kind enough, and as soon as I pulled a paperback mystery out of my bag, I think she knew I wasn’t up for being pestered.

FANTASTIC chicken breast on a bed of romaine. Moist through and through, with a shell of crispy melted Asiago. Slices of roasted garlic were a good idea, delicate of taste and texture. The Caesar dressing had a citrusy tang that went well with the Asiago chicken, but with just the lettuce it was a little overpowering.

The salad came with two slices of Texas toast, which were nicely crispy but, in my opinion, too salty — like they had been seasoned with a little too much garlic salt.
