This salad is a classic for a reason…..it’s really good!
I’ll be honest. I never imagined I would add a Caesar salad recipe to the blog. It’s a ubiquitous staple on restaurant menus throughout the US. I figured people might be a little bored with the Caesar salad. I couldn’t imagine that this recipe would hold any interest or mystique for my readers.
Enter my husband.
My husband and I are totally different culinary creatures which might seem problematic (it is occasionally) but for the most part I enjoy the difference of opinion. My tastes lean towards provincial European and Asian fare, his are decidedly all American . So, as you might suspect, the inclusion of a Caesar salad post is highly influenced by my husband.
When he first requested that I do a post on Caesar salad, I balked but relented and decided to hear him out. He said, “Think about it, there’s a reason Caesar salad is everywhere, it’s good and people love it.”
He went on to say, “Out of all the restaurants we’ve had Caesar salad, only a few have been good or really highlight all of the ingredients. Your Caesar salad is always so good, it’s one of the best I’ve ever had. It’s one of my favorite dressings (besides Hidden Valley Ranch, lol) people will love it…. I do, and I love you too.”
Now, how could I resist such sweet words………my husband professing his love for me and my Caesar salad so here it is. I hope you enjoy it as much as he does!
