I think I have an addition to SALAD!
I don’t like it just because it’s normally healthier than other options on a restaurant menu, but I love the taste and love how it can be changed up so easily with the ingredients and dressings. One of my all-time favorite salads is Caesar Salad. It always taste so good to me and I’m usually never disappointed when I order it. Since I have appetizers on the brain with Super Bowl coming up, I wanted to make an appetizer version of my favorite salad and came up with these Caesar Salad Wonton Cups. They were quick to make and were perfect for snacking on. It can be changed depending on the extra veggies you like to add to it, but also depending on the dressing you use. My current favorite dressing comes from Bolthouse Farms (and no, this isn’t a sponsored post) so we used Creamy Caesar Yogurt Dressing for these cups, and they tasted amazing. We also added some mini croutons, cherry tomatoes and shaved Parmesan with the lettuce and grilled chicken pieces. The result was an amazing appetizer or side dish that I’m hoping to make more often. Obviously, you can do this with any kind of salad, but here is what you’ll need to make the Caesar Salad version…
