Chicken Club Caesar Salad

Chicken Club Caesar Salad

Last week I realized that  I need to re-think my approach to Meatless Mondays. I usually don’t jump on bandwagons especially when it comes to my food, but Meatless Mondays sounded like an intriguing challenge. I made Caesar salad for a friend’s bridal shower luncheon–a salad I hadn’t made in almost a year. The guests at the shower loved […]
