Rich in flavor and easy to make, Caesar salad often appears at parties…perhaps a little too often.
The truth is, most people serve Caesar salad almost the same way everytime they make it. And that’s a shame, because with a few twists, Caesar salad can be an exciting part of almost any gathering, party, or holiday.
One interesting variation on Caesar salad that we’ve come across for a Deconstructed Caesar Salad With Parmesan Toasts from the folks at Once Upon a Plate is definitely a twist worth taking.
Pared down to its most flavorful components, this party friendly Caesar salad is just the thing to make when you seek a low maintenance salad that looks as fresh as it tastes.
