This Caesar has no egg, no anchovy, no mustard, and no a few other traditional ingredients; but it is quick, easy, and all the teen-agers eat it. The passive work time is approximate and is for the garlic to flavor the dressing.
I found this on the web and adapted it to make a fabulous salad. I would never have thought of putting cinnamon in a dressing but it really works here. I have sometimes left the mint out and just increased the amount of the two other herbs.
This is a delicious salad that I adapted from one by Sandra Lee of Semi-Homemade Cooking on the Food Network. She recommends using an Asian-style salad dressing such as miso dressing or ginger dressing. We definitely prefer using a raspberry walnut vinaigrette. Also, the amount of cinnamon used in the candied walnuts may be decreased if desired -- I prefer just a little less, as well as the fact that the cinnamon seems to make it take longer for the walnuts to crystallize in the oven. I hope you enjoy this!
