Silly Susie Saw Caesar Salad by the Sunny Seashore

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by COOKGIRl

This is what you get when you combine two traditional salads: Caesar salad and tuna salad. If you have access to good fresh tuna, please use it in this recipe. For an easy crouton recipe see my posted French bread croutons #141848. *Warning*: salad contains raw egg. This salad is ample enough to be served as a main dish. Serve with a platter of fresh seasonal fruit and a glass of wine and won't you just be a happy camper?!

We really enjoyed this...I'd forgotten how superior home-made Caesar salad dressing is to the bottled stuff. I also really liked the addition of made this recipe filling enough for a light dinner. I left off the croutons but otherwise prepared the recipe as written. Thanks for sharing!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In blender add all the salad dressing ingredients and blend until smooth. I always prepare the dressing several hours in advance and refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. In large salad bowl, combine the two lettuces, tuna, Parmesan cheese, red onion crescents if using and croutons. Add the dressing and toss to coat well.
  3. Prep time does not include baking the croutons.
