These days I have been OBSESSED with all things Caesar. When I was in Ireland a few weeks ago, I had a Caesar salad for at least one meal per day. As you know, making things from scratch is my way of living. I like to know what is going into my body. Don’t get me wrong, I can definitely take longer and sometimes costs more money to make these recipes. That being said, this recipe is a clone to the original Caesar dressing that I crave (not the calories and fat). Now that we have made our salad even more healthy, I say, let’s have some crispy french fries as a great combination. The fries are tossed in olive oil and homemade breadcrumbs. The recipe for the bread crumbs are on featured on this blog http://bit.ly/2O6hXz2. Comment below and let me know what you think…
