You’ll notice that (at present) I’ve given up on feeding Shannon Stacey’s family. I still can’t quite pinpoint what they will/won’t eat… and every so often she posts that they all enjoyed something I thought was “forbidden!” Also, it needs more time and pictures.
I remember though, that Shannon was crushed when she found out caesar dressing normally has anchovies. Fish is on the “no no list.” Although you really don’t (or heavens, shouldn’t taste fish in caesar) – but the knowing can affect things.
So, I’ve found a recipe for basically caesar salad without anchovies! Yay!
It also includes grilled romaine, which is one of my new favorite things. It works in the winter even if you live in one of those cold snowy areas, if you have a grill pan. This is the one I have. I love it.
And now the recipe? Super simple. Basically five ingredients for the dressing – sans salt and pepper. (Which everyone has, right?) I found it at food 52. I’ve been making a lot of their recipes lately, with great success, even adapting them.
Doesn’t it just look delicious? And you know, if you wanted a more substantial meal, you could add in some grilled chicken. Cook the chicken first on the grill/grill pan – and then the lettuce. Extra flavor, pot double duty. I see no drawbacks.
And now, the winners! (I know it’s what you all care about. 😉 And that’s okay!)
First up – BA Tortuga’s great spotlight. The winner is… Pam! You know the drill!
The winner of Not Wicked Enough (I do love that cover!) by the fantastic Carolyn Jewel is Diane D. – please send me your address (via the contact form) to claim your prize.
And remember when Joely Sue Burkhart was so sweet and shared a lengthy excerpt with us? Well she also offered up a prize. Her lucky winner is Jeanne Miro.
Pam, Diane, and Jeanne, you have until the end of Saturday, March 10 to contact me. (Let’s go with EST – 11:59 PM and all.)
And remember – there are still many other giveaways open at the blog and to come! Thanks for sticking around. Xoxo
Oh – duh – if you want the recipe for the fully grilled caesar salad, just click on the lovely image of it. I figured/felt they’d do it best.
That plate of food looks delicious!
First I’m thrilled I was picked as Joely Sue’s winner!
The grilled romaine sounds fantastic and I’m a sucker for new receipe ideas. When I make salads I always end up buying a head of iceburg lettuce (which my husband prefers) but I love romaine so I always mix some in romaine, which is my favorite, as well.
Your receipe sounds like the perfect thing to serve with salmon or fish. Now can you think of any new receipes to make using them? After 42 years of marriage he still asks for “something new”. I think that he sees me as Betty Crocker or Paula Deane!
Congratulations to the winners.
I’m going to have to try this. Thank you for sharing the recipe.
