My Cousin Tracey's Killer Caeser Salad

September 22, 2014
Author Notes

My cousin Tracey brought this vegetarian caesar salad dressing (and accompanying garden fresh romaine lettuce) to my house when I hosted my family's annual Christmas dinner last year. It's not that no one noticed the overnight brined turkey or the homemade bourbon cranberry sauce I served, but we were all pretty caught up in this salad. Basically every family member left with a hand written recipe. —Lisa Straus
