Handheld Caesar

I was hosting a bbq and wanted to serve a salad that could be handheld.  It’s simple, inexpensive and a crowd pleaser for any age.

2 hearts of romaine

1-bag croutons, chopped

4 TB of your favorite Caesar dressing, recipe to follow from my friend Jen

3 TB Parmesan reggiano

Lemon Zest

Remove the outer leaves from both heads of romaine, about 10-12 leaves. Clean and pat dry with a paper towel.  Roughly chop the remaining romaine, clean and dry.  Mix chopped lettuce with the dressing and Parm.  Spoon salad mixture in lettuce cups and top with a sprinkle of lemon zest. 

Caesar Dressing:

½ cup fresh Parmesan

¼ cup olive oil

¼ cup canola oil

¼ cup lemon juice

2 garlic cloves crushed

1t. Worcestershire sauce

Salt & pepper to taste

Mix all the ingredients and dress your salad. I love making this anchovy free/ kid friendly salad dressing.
