A traditional recipe for Caesar salad along with the accompanying dressing is always good, whether served in a small portion as an appetizer, light lunch or side dish, or you could top with steak or chicken and offer it as the main course. This is a recipe in many home cooks’ repertoires because the flavor is fantastic and Caesar salad certainly has a lot of fans all over the globe. The cheese used in this recipe is what gives it a special flavor, so if you are in the mood for a classic salad but with an unusual flair, give this recipe a try and see how well the creamy texture and special flavor of the cheese adds a very special touch to this classic salad dressing recipe.

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.
