This recipe is intended to be thick like a Caesar dressing should be. Traditionally a caesar salad is dressed with the dressing before serving, its not meant to be poured on or thin.
This recipe is an old favorite. I am certain everyone prepares it this way at sometime or another. I can't imagine a summer that would pass without having this at least once a week when the harvest is in
A very festive dish! The flavors blend nicely together. It's a wonderful alternative to rice or couscous. The Quinoa seed is considered a supergrain and an almost perfect protein. You could easily reduce the amount of olive oil in this dish to bring down the fat content. The original recipe says it serves 4 to 6, however, its more of a crowd pleaser. I would say you could serve 10 with it easily.
The buttery, cookielike topping in most crisp recipes is usually a calorie bomb. But chef Dean Rucker from The Golden Door in Escondido, California, uses a whole-grain crumble of whole-wheat flour and rolled oats that's gently sweetened with honey, so you save calories and get almost 5 grams of fiber per serving. Feel free to swap in other fruit options to take advantage of the season's freshest picks.
