The ingredient's for a Caesar salad are pretty cut and dry. Lettuce, Parmesan cheese, croutons, salad dressing, and if you are lucky they may throw on some grilled chicken into the mix. McDonalds doesn't really stray to far from this idea. After all if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
I recommend staying away from the croutons. Sure they don't add up to that many carbs in this meal, but are they really that essential to this salad? Save yourself the carbs for later when you really need them. Also, go light on the Newman's own dressing, a little dressing goes a long way.
the McDonalds Grilled Chicken Caesar salad is not a great salad, but its not a bad one either. Its a Caesar that doesnt taste like fish so I consider it a winner.
