Crisp romaine lettuce chopped up in a bowl with grated parmesan, parmesan garlic croutons and homemade caesar dressing.

As simple as Caesar Salad is, it really has a lot of flavor. From the delicious (and addicting!) Parmesan Garlic Croutons, homemade caesar dressing and grated parmesan this will become your new and improved Caesar Salad. I served it alongside grilled pizzas the other night, and everyone was raving about it – especially the dressing. This salad is one where you don’t need to omit a veggie someone may not like (like Lance with tomatoes). It has simple ingredients that everyone loves. You can add shrimp or chicken to this salad for a full meal, serve it as a side or roll it in a wrap for lunch!

    I love Ceasar salad especially because of the croutons. I’ve never used Worcestershire sauce in mine. Saving this for later so I can try it soon. Sounds yum.

    We are such big fans of salads. In fact, Hubby HAS to have one every single night for dinner. We’ve always enjoyed Caesar Salad but never made it at home. Usually it is a tossed salad.I like the simplicity of your. Will make it tomorrow night.
