Finger Caesar Salad

Finger Caesar Salad

Caesar salad is my favorite salad…but about the only time I’d ever eat it was at a restaurant because it always seemed like a lot of work to replicate at home. I’ve tried the store-bought Caesar dressings (and I’m not a fan) and making it from scratch wasn’t too appealing. Anchovies? I don’t think so! Plus, Caesar salad is best eaten immediately after being tossed and since I’m a super slow eater, this didn’t work for me either.
