Company tonight…

Friends from Texas and Ohio were over for dinner tonight.  We ordered pizza because they don’t get to enjoy the same type of pizza that is made in the Northeast.  I thought a Caesars salad would be a nice complement to the pizza and have that recipe for you below.

The comments I received were that there was a little too much Dijon mustard in it so I reduced that by half in the recipe below.  The second one was that there was too much dressing for the amount of salad so my suggestion would be to make the dressing, put in about half, taste it and decide if you would like to add more.  Any extra dressing can be refrigerated for about 5 days.

With all the craziness I lost my camera so I apologize that there is no picture again tonight.

Enjoy the Caesars salad without the all the fat!
