CAESAR SALAD

If you are in any way thinking to make an appetizer to go with your meal/menu, let that be a salad as they are so satisfying, healthy, and wholesome. Salads are an essential part of every meal. The meals are incomplete without a bowl of salad on the spread. This one is an absolute best! I had made with few other versions but this one never left the spread ever since.


The ingredients used in the dressing of the salad are easily available and when combined together they just blend so well and the result is everlasting. You can't have enough of it. Without wasting any more time, let's get started with the Caesar salad.
