Inspired by a similar salad at a RAM Brewery in the U Village near University of Washington in Seattle, this Spicy Chicken Caesar Salad features a jalapeno caesar dressing, a grilled jalapeno, and homemade croutons.

You can make the croutons in the oven (as shown in the recipe below) or in the air fryer if you have one (click here for the air fryer recipe).   The dressing also has its own recipe page HERE in case you want to use it for something else.
