Fresh Ingredients are Key for Great Caesar Salad

This is a “recipe” for cooks who sometimes cook without recipes.  The instructions are brief, the amounts are approximate and you can adjust the ingredients to your own taste.

I use these particular ingredients when I make my own Caesar salad because they’re fresh and very flavorful.
