Chicken Caesar salad with cannabis
Now that the colder weather is here, many of us will start to turn to hot, comfort foods that are easy to prepare in the oven or a slow cooker, but that shift in eating habits is not typically a healthy one. Though some of the fattier meal options might seem more appealing and easier to infuse with cannabis, edibles are a delightful form of art that can be served up in a variety of ways.
Salads make an excellent substitute for the decrease in activity and lighter meals, but you can’t just toss cannabutter in and go, as this leaves many consumers missing out on this delicious nutrient-rich side dish. Here we will show you how to make a salad with either pure decarboxylated plant materials, or cannabis oil, and finish with a simple chicken Caesar salad recipe that is sure to impress, with both its flavor and effects.
How to make a salad with decarboxylated weed
Some less experienced edibles consumers assume that the cannabis plant materials must be processed in order to extract the potent cannabinoids to add to the dish, but that’s not entirely true. While many enthusiasts prefer the taste and texture of a more refined ingredient, salad is one of the few side dishes that nicely covers the crispy pieces of weed so it can be tossed right in after one simple step.
- Baking pan
- Parchment paper
- Cannabis (1gram per serving)
- Large bowl
Grind up 1 gram of cannabis per serving of salad and spread it across a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet.
Preheat the oven to 325°F.
Bake the bud grind in the oven for 30-35 minutes, tossing the mixture occasionally to avoid scalding.
Remove the herb from the oven and sprinkle it over an undressed salad.
Use tongs to evenly coat the lettuce in with the cannabis before adding the dressing, chicken, parmesan cheese, bacon and breadcrumbs.
Serve while fresh.
How to make a salad with cannabis oil
This method is often preferred, as it is easy to add directly to the salad dressing and adds no additional texture to the dish.
- Cannabis oil (the equivalent of olive oil when requested in a salad recipe)
- Large bowl
- Small bowl
Once the salad is prepared but not dressed, pour the salad dressing into a small mixing bowl.
Add the cannabis oil to the bowl and combine the two ingredients with a whisk.
Pour the dressing over the prepared salad and toss it with tongs before adding any additional toppings.
Chicken Caesar salad recipe
This chicken Caesar salad recipe is a simple version that allows for tweaking and preferred additions while utilizing either method of infusion that is mentioned up above. Test it out with homemade dressing or your favorite brand of croutons until the flavor and texture are exactly what you have been craving.
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes
Calories: 100 per serving
- 2 large chicken breasts
- 1 head of romaine lettuce
- 1 cup of dry breadcrumbs
- ¼ cup of Caesar salad dressing
- ¼ cup of parmesan cheese
- 3 tablespoons of bacon bits
- 3 tablespoons of olive oil (or cannabis oil)
- Large bowl
- Frying pan
Begin by frying the chicken breasts in a pan, allowing to brown on each side.
Now rinse and prepare the head of lettuce before shredding it into smaller, more bite-sized pieces.
Place the lettuce into the bowl and move onto the method of choice for infusion before continuing.
Drizzle the salad dressing over the lettuce then add the toppings, including bacon, parmesan cheese, and breadcrumbs.
Shred the chicken and add it to the bowl before serving. Dressed salad is best when enjoyed fresh, so if you have a few hours until your meal, try to wait until as late as possible to prepare it.
How long do edibles take to kick in?
A lot of consumers go into their first experience with edibles, assuming that the effects will be similar to smoking weed, and while that is partially true, the results can take a lot longer to kick in. The cannabinoids in the edibles can take up to 2 hours to be fully absorbed, which is why it is highly recommended to wait at least 2 hours before ingesting a second serving of cannabis-infused goods. Taking this precaution provides a safe window of time to gauge the effects which can help to avoid an intense, uncomfortable or overwhelming high.
How long do edibles last?
The reason that caution is so often discussed surrounding edibles is that the effects are long-lasting, so an unexpected or adverse experience is going to last a lot longer with this method of ingestion than they would if you were just smoking weed. The results provided by marijuana edibles can last up to 12 full hours after the initial ingestion, so be prepared for a long road ahead when dappling in higher dosed treats.
