  • 3 heads romaine lettuce, chopped (about 10 cups chopped romaine lettuce)
  • 1 1/2 cups roasted chickpeas (we love Biena ranch flavored roasted chickpeas!)*
  • 1 batch vegan caesar dressing
  • Optional: 1 avocado, sliced


  1. First make your vegan caesar dressing and set aside.
  2. Next, you can choose to serve this on a platter or in a bowl. Platters are pretty for entertaining or serving guests and bowls are great for date nights, family dinner and meal prep.
  3. Toss the chopped romaine with the dressing until well coated, leaving a little dressing for drizzling on top when done. Sprinkle chickpeas generously on top, adding more if you’d like additional crunch. Drizzle with a little more dressing, then serve! Serves 4-6 depending on if you are serving as a main or a side. Feel free to add avocado to the salad as well!

Recipe Notes

To store: store any leftover salad in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days.

We love using these ranch flavored roasted chickpeas for extra flavor and crunch!

Optional if not vegan:

  • Add ¼ cup parm or sub a dairy free parm on top. We love this recipe for vegan parm!
  • This salad would be delicious with the addition of halved cherry or grape tomatoes and sliced persian cucumbers, too. YUM.
  • If you aren’t vegan, this salad is delicious served with grilled chopped buffalo, honey mustard or bbq chicken.
