Caesar Salad

One of the very best, simple salads! It’s such a treat to have it prepared tableside at an upscale restaurant. But when that’s not an option, it’s super easy to make at home.

I like to add extra shredded Parmesan cheese and freshly ground black pepper to each serving. I know that many people love the crunchy croutons that usually accompany Caesar salads, but I prefer to leave them off and save the excess carbs. Plus, it’s still delicious without them! I have served this to guests many times and no one has questioned me about the missing croutons.

To make the salad a full meal, just add some protein, like grilled chicken or shrimp.

Add lettuce to a large bowl.  Drizzle with Caesar dressing and toss to coat evenly.  Sprinkle with cheese and serve.  Add more freshly ground black pepper, if desired.
