Caesar Salad is a fresh green salad made of lettuce leaves, crispy bread croutons, parmesan cheese and a flavorful caesar dressing.
This salad is an international favorite and its dressing is typically made of lemon juice, olive oil, egg, Worcestershire sauce and black pepper.
We skip adding the Worcestershire sauce in the vegetarian version of Caesar salad, which instead derives its rich flavor mainly from a creamy dressing of eggless mayonnaise, olive oil, sauces and a mix of spices.
In its traditional form, Caesar salad is typically made with romaine lettuce leaves, but you can use iceberg lettuce or other types of lettuce available to you as well.
Romaine Lettuce leaves have this crisp quality which makes them an excellent choice for a crunchy caesar salad. You can also add other leafy vegetables like kale to this salad to enhance the nutrition.
Caesar Salad is very comforting and what can be better than eating something tasty and soothing with very less calories and high on vitamins and other micro nutrients.
