Just delicious. Love the health factor considered in developing this recipe, especially since I'm watching my saturated fat and cholesterol intake. I'd never have made caesar salad for a party recently if not for this one. There was not a romaine left on anyone's plate. Thanks!

I found this dressing to be better than store bought varieties and I can adjust it to my tastes. The croutons turned out flavored well but watch the time in the oven. Might be safer to toast the croutons at 300 to 350 degrees F.
