This Classic Caesar Salad Will Impress Your Family #TastyTuesdays

Caesar Salad is incredible simple, yet oh so delicious. One little tip though, you might not want to mention the anchovies to most people. Or maybe that is just my husband and son that wouldn’t touch it if they knew.

The traditional salad is quite simple with just lettuce, cheese and croutons. I like to add in some leftover chicken for those “too hot to cook” nights.


Health Tip: Since the dressing uses a raw egg in this, be sure to use the healthiest (safest) egg you can. What exactly that is depends on who you ask so I am not going to outline the differences between cage free, pasturized, pastured, organic, etc. Do what you think is best.
