Adjust the flavors according to your preference, adding more lemon juice for acidity or more mayonnaise for creaminess. Set the dressing aside.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the torn romaine lettuce and sliced grilled chicken breast.

  3. In a separate small bowl, whisk together the extra-virgin olive oil and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  4. Drizzle the olive oil and lemon juice mixture over the lettuce and chicken. Toss gently to coat the salad evenly.

  5. Add the grated Parmesan cheese to the salad and toss again to combine.

  6. Pour the Caesar dressing (low-carb) over the salad, starting with a small amount and adding more as desired. Toss once more to coat the salad with the dressing.

  7. Transfer the salad to a serving plate or bowl and serve immediately.
