Grilled Romaine Caesar Salad

Bored of regular cold salad? Yes, I am not always in the mood for cold salad. As Chinese, I am never used to eating raw and cold veggie all the time. We always cook our vegetables. Steam, broil, stir-fry, or braise. You name it, but just rarely eating them raw. This romaine salad is perfect to bring some warmth in the stomach and some tasty char flavors. The citrus caesar dressing is easy to make and lighter than regular caesar dressing. It didn’t over power the grilled flavors on the lettuce, but gave some freshness to the salad instead. Something new and something different! Hope you will like it!

Cobb Salad with Homemade Dressing

The dressing of this recipe is a vinaigrette. It is light and tasty. It is definitely better than ranch or blue cheese dressing. With the avocado, the salad is creamy and delicious. Bryan loves the dressing, and he loves everything with bacon. I think I will be making this salad a lot more!

Chicken Caesar Salad with Homemade Dressing and Croutons

Caesar salad is probably my favorite salad! You can find it in almost all restaurants. But it is hard to find a good store-bought Caesar dressing. Most of them are not creamy enough. Finally, I have made up my mind to try to make my own salad from scratch. (Bryan said that I didn’t make the salad from scratch, because I only use anchovy paste not the real anchovy.) Oh well, it is close enough! I am proud of what I have put out! The dressing was so tasty and creamy. The croutons went so well with the salad. The store-bought dressing and croutons can’t really compare to the homemade version. However, the whole process is pretty time consuming. This is more like a weekend recipe. Enjoy!
