A Restaurant Inspired Recipe you can make in 5 Minutes or Less
Caesar salad is one of my favorite go-to salads as a meal or a side dish, especially when we are eating out. The rich and tangy dressing is tart, garlicky and creamy. De-lish!
It is a flavorful salad and can be used with romaine lettuce in the traditional form, or I commonly throw in some spinach for extra Vitamin A and fiber. This is a great potential option for low carb, keto, and vegetarian diets.
I naturally assumed it was very difficult to make, and when I started researching what some of the common ingredients were, it saw that it could be very easy to make at home.
HERE is a step by step video to make this tasty dressing!
This is a simple and easy salad dressing that packs tons of flavor. This recipe is kid and toddler tested and approved and appeases even the picky eaters in the family. That is correct - this is salad that picky kids will eat! At least in our house they have. Caesar salad is one of the best and most versatile salads as it goes with chicken, shrimp, salmon – just about anything!
Does it Matter what I use to Blend?
It works really well to use a compact, counter top blender like the Nutribullet.
This way you can blend it ahead of time and store it in the same container in the refrigerator until the salad is ready to be tossed (a few minutes prior to serving).
The salad is best if the dressing is made ahead of time and then tossed all together about 15 minutes before serving. If you try it, please comment below how it turned out for you family and if your kids cleaned their plates!
