Simple Caesar Salad

Romaine lettuce is a staple for some of the animals at National Aquarium and it is the foundation for our Caesar salad, which almost everyone seems to like. Caesar salad dressing was one of the first salad dressings chef Mark Miranda learned how to make in cooking class (back in middle school) and it is one he continues to make at home today.

Caesar Salad Shopping Tip

Stores often carry pre-washed, pre-trimmed romaine celery hearts, a major time-saver.

Caesar Salad Cooking Tip

It's not hard to make your own croutons. Cube some old bread, place into a 350 degree oven, and toss and turn every 10 minutes until golden brown.
