Julia's Caesar over Mixed Greens, a non-traditional Caesar Salad
This quickly composed salad is not the recipe I am sharing, no not at all! Today's recipe is for the salad dressing that you see drizzled over the greens.
Often when we enjoy a salad with our meals it is not a traditional salad in a recipe sort of way. For example, what you see over this platter of salad greens is a Caesar dressing, yet there are no croutons scattered over the greens, and it is more than just romaine lettuce.
A variety of greens is often on our table in salad form, and I have come to not only enjoy the fresh taste but crave a salad with such flavor and variety. This salad contained Romaine, Tuscan Kale, and Baby Spinach.
