All hail Caesar….
Caesar salad that is. This was a quite tasty meal. It is all thanks to the La Dolce Vegan Challenge. Today’s recipe was a Romaine Lettuce Salad with Caesar Salad Dressing and Frying Pan Croutons. The dressing was superb. I couldn’t find the lemons I bought last week, so I subbed rice vinegar for the lemon juice. Wowza! Josh said it tasted just like Caesar salad dressing minus the anchovies. Yuck! The frying pan croutons were delicous too. I will admit I was a bit skeptical about croutons made in a frying pan. I usually make mine in the oven. They were good.
Here are the croutons sauteeing in the pan. Mmmm mmm.
Here is the dressing just after it was blended. I was thrown back by how dark the dressing was, but then I remembered it had tamari in it. Hence the dark color. I am used to Caesar dressing being lighter. Still tasty!
