When you’re sent a box of salad dressings, you have no choice but to get sauced up. This week I played around with some Ken’s Dressings in hopes of developing a delicious yet simple recipe for Memorial Day weekend – it’s that time of year where all eyes are on what you bring to the function. You feel me? 2015 has brought a lot of Caesar Salads into my life, so I was inspired by those flavors. After some thought, and factoring in that a lot of people don’t like anchovies (I’m not one of them), I decided to switch out those tiny fish for some edible florals. Even better when they are straight from my yard!
For this go to salad, all you’ll need is the following:
+ Ken’s Caesar Dressing
+ Edible Flowers, like these pansies
+ Romaine Hearts
+ Parmesan Shavings
+ Parmesan Crisps from Trader Joes (or your basic croutons, but why you tryna be basic?)
This recipe is so easy, you don’t even need directions. Chop everything up, throw it in a bowl, give it a squirt.
