Recipe by jrusk
I got this from "500 Low-Carb Recipes". It does taste somewhat like Caesar but without the clean up, fuss and has less fat. I'm posting ingredients like the cookbook says but I never measure anything and I use what I have on hand. I do let the garlic marinate in the oil. I just add whatever salad goods straight to the bowl then follow the directions for tossing and adding the other ingredients.

This was very good, although not much like a caesar salad. We really liked it, and I'll make it again. It was easy to make and went together pretty quickly. It had a flavorful combination of vegetables, and the dressing was tasty and not heavy. The only changes I made were to use hearts of romaine instead of a whole head, and sub yellow bell pepper for green. A bit more cheese couldn't hurt, but that is personal preference. I think I'd also like freshly ground pepper on it. Thanks for posting, jrusk! Made for Fall 2008 PAC.
