organic avocado caesar salad

organic avocado caesar salad This weekend CH and I didn’t have a full schedule (like normal) so we were able to spend time at home together. It was such a treat to be at home together with no plans! I’m not going to lie we spent much of the time cleaning and organizing, but it was still fantastic.

Sunday afternoon I made us a caesar salad with a twist. The idea was inspired by this avocado and romaine salad.

::Organic Avocado Caesar Salad::

Serves 2

Ingredients

1 head Organic Romaine

1 organic Avacado

1 piece of Ezekiel Bread

1 tsp Sea Salt

Homemade Caesar Dressing

Cut the Ezekiel Bread into crouton sized pieces and toast in an oven set to broil. Meanwhile, Wash the romaine and give it a rough chop. Slice the avocado and place it into a large mixing bowl with the romaine. Sprinkle salt over the salad and give it a quick toss, then add the caesar dressing. Last but certainly not least add the croutons.

**For a wheat free & gluten free version of this salad add toasted almond slivers instead of Ezekiel Bread croutons.

::Homemade Caesar Dressing ::

Ingredients

3 Garlic cloves (minced then crushed)

2 tbsp mayonnaise

2 tsp whole grain mustard (I’m not a mustard lover, but you’ve got to try this!)

1 tbsp white vinegar

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

fresh black pepper

In a small bowl whisk all ingredients until combined. Chill dressing until you are ready to toss it with the salad.

enjoy!
