Photo Description:

Caesar salad recipes vary, although they are all similar. This one is crouton-free but the crunch of the bread is replaced with chicken or shrimp on top, along with bold-tasting appeal of cheese in the dressing, so you will find this not only full-flavored but very satisfying. A blender makes this a quick and easy dish to make, despite the fact you are making both the salad and the dressing from scratch. Arrange your choice of shrimp or chicken strips on top to finish the dish and offer the most appealing, appetizing presentation.
