Notes

I had a salad similar to this at a restaurant once and I loved it. It was such a tasty spin on the traditional Cesar Salad! I lived far away from this restaurant and I knew the only way I would be able to have it as often as I wanted it would be to make it myself. This recipe is the result of my experimenting until I got it right. It probably isn't the restaurant's exact recipe but it sure is good!
