Thankyou- this was a very light, unique, and refreshing caesar salad...we really enjoyed it. The dressing was very flavorful. We enjoyed it with the grapes and I think it would be equally as good with our without ,depending on your preference.......thanks for sharing this will now be a household fave:)
oh wow! this was a HUGE hit at my house last night! I made it for my whole family and everybody loved it! it got rave reviews from all of us! it was fun too because i've never made my own croutons! and my bf thought they were perfect- not too crunchy not too soft! The dressing was very tasty and i enjoyed it because all the flavors of a ceasar salad were there without nasty anchovie paste! and grapes? how interesting! great great great salad! we are keeping this recipe as a regular dinner at our house! ;)

My husband and I are empty-nesters who moved to Nampa, Idaho in October, 2005. I love to walk, and here in Nampa it is particularly enjoyable because of all the animals, something that was not a part of my walks in California. I started writing about the subject of hospitality last year, and began posting the articles on our website, as well as "articles" sites on the "net". This has become a passion for me as I have watched people in our society becoming less and less connected. My husband and I are Christians, and as such, believe we have a responsibility to welcome others into our home, to be hospitable, if you will. <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg">
