      I added a little bit more of red bell pepper and mushrooms. I think I got too much parmesan dressing. When I tasted it, it was good. But 24 hours later, it is even more delicious. Thanks Kittencal :)

      I had remembered reading this recipe and it came to mind when I needed a creamy dressing for a shrimp caesar salad. Tossed some boiled shrimp with the dressing and served over lettuce. This was the tastiest salad, one which the whole family gobbled up! Thanks Kitten, for another fabulous recipe! Roxygirl
