All Hail Caesar salad for this Ides of March (Video)
Let's see if you can follow my train of thought. All Hail Caesar. Beware Ides of March. Look out behind you, Caesar! Caesar salad.
That's why your recipe for today, the Ides of March, is the Caesar salad with crunchy croutons.
This popular salad is on the menu at Pizzavino707, which reader Carol Bloom of Woodland Hills describes as a lovely little restaurant on the plaza in Sebastopol, Calif., which serves it with "the most delicious crunchy croutons I've ever tasted." At Bloom's request, Times Test Kitchen manager Noelle Carter coaxed the recipe out of Pizzavino707, and you can watch this video of her making the salad here.
If you try this recipe, or any other recipe from the L.A. Times Test Kitchen, we'd like to know about it. Please share your photos here, so we can showcase them on our blog, and occassionally in print.
And if you have a request for Culinary SOS, you can e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your name, phone number and city of residence.
