Simple Caesar Salad

caesar salad

We are still slowly unpacking and reorganizing our new home. After moving everything in our house, we still had a storage unit that had to be moved packed full of books, pictures, family mementos and lots of other little things. Since I’ve been spending so much time working around the house, our dinners have been really simple. I’ve been making some of our favorite foods like this simple Caesar salad.

I love making big salads in the summer, especially when I’m too lazy to even heat up the grill. To go along with this, I just sliced up a baguette and heated up a few chicken nuggets for my son.

And our outdoor grilling area is almost complete. I can’t wait to share the photos with you later this week.

    @Partha, you might be able to add some sea salt, or just kosher salt if you can’t use sea salt. Anchovies have a very salty taste.
