      Just finished a late lunch of this delicious chicken caesar salad. The buttermilk really tenderizes the chicken and the salad dressing is great. I did not make the croutons, but used some I already had on hand. Next time I may add a bit of "spice" to the dressing, but that's just my preference. We will definitely have this salad again. Thanks so much for the post. Made for the AUS/NZ Make My Recipe tag, November, 2011.

      Oh my. Oh my. The day started out cloudy, cold, and not very "Spring-like" for this day in late April on the farm. However; there were signs, good signs, that despite the cool days, Spring was still flourishing even under cool conditions. One of the best things a cool Spring brings is the absolutely delicious Spring garden lettuces. And I know of a perfect way to use this lettuce in the "practically perfect in every way" salad. I followed this exactly except for the radicchio, (didn't have this) but subbed thinly sliced red onion. Last night I was able to quickly throw together the buttermilk marinade and placed the chicken breasts in a ziploc bag. Then just followed the recipe exactly and the end result was a radiant, fresh taste that begged you want to dip a bread roll in the bottom of the salad bowl just to sop up whatever mixed dressing was left. Outstanding~WiGal~we will use this for many, many weeks to come this summer. Hopefully though, a ray of sunshine would be nice too! Made for *Spring Spectacular* April 2008.
