Caesar Salad is my personal favorite.  I make it almost every week!  So I am shocked that I haven’t posted it on the blog until now.  There is just something about the crisp romaine, cherry tomatoes, croutons, and parmesan that I love together.  It is simple but absolutely delicious and mouthwatering!

I was recently inspired by a dressing from our local market.  Asiago Caesar Dressing.  The last time I made a caesar salad I used it and it was amazing!  I had to recreate it for myself.

Now I know that traditionally caesar dressing uses anchovies.  So if you would like to add some to it, feel free!  I just can’t get past putting anchovies in my dressing.  And I am sure that most restaurants use anchovies in their dressings and I have eaten them, I just prefer not to use them.

This entire salad came together beautifully.  I like to use cherry tomatoes in my caesar salad to add one more flavor and a pop of bright color.  It was so simple to make and the dressing turned out better than expected.  This easy to make salad was definitely a five star salad.  And it goes so great with almost any meal!  You will love it just as much as we did!

  1. Can’t wait to try this. When I make caesar salad dressing I use the anchovy paste instead of the anchovies and then pass the anchovy strips with the salad for whoever want the “real” thing. Love your blog.
