If ever there was a salad that could make you want to lick the plate, this would be it. Everything from the lettuce which was at the peak of its crispness, to the homemade brioche croutons that had been drizzled with parmesan olive oil to the pecorino romano cheese and Caesar Dressing from Dress it Up Dressing, there’s not one thing I would change about this salad. It literally is the best Caesar salad you’ll ever eat!
The Caesar Dressing is definitely one of my favorites from Dress it Up Dressing, along with the Champagne Vinaigrette. We’ve been nothing but impressed by all of the dressings and vinaigrettes from Dress it Up Dressing, and I literally can’t wait to create another box once we’ve finished all of the delicious dressings and vinaigrettes we currently have.
The Brioche croutons are made from the most delicious Brioche bread that our local bakery makes every Monday. We order it unsliced because we like to slice it ourselves, depending on what we’re making with it. With this particular loaf, we’d made the most delicious oven-baked sandwiches, and later in the week, I made croutons drizzled with a dipping olive oil blended with garlic and toasted parmesan to top off our favorite Insta-Pot split pea soup. I made far more than I needed at the time, as my plans to create this salad were already playing through my mind.
This Caesar salad was also the perfect excuse to use the Cippolini onions that we picked up at Fresh Market. I highly recommend them if you can find them at your local grocery store or farmers market.
