Creamy Caesar Salad with Spicy Croutons
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!
