Products used: Peach Balsamic Vinegar, Tuscan Herb Olive Oil

Ingredients

FOR CAESAR DRESSING:
2 small cloves Garlic
1¼ cup Mayonnaise
2 tsp Dijon Mustard
½ tsp Mustard Powder
2 Tbsp SOOC Peach Balsamic
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
½ cup grated Parmesan
Juice of half a lemon
2 Tbsp SOOC Tuscan Herb Olive Oil
¼ tsp ground Black Pepper
FOR SALAD:
3 hearts of Romaine Lettuce, cut in half lengthwise
1 Avocado, cubed
½ loaf of Italian bread, ripped into 1 inch pieces
¼ cup grated Parmesan Cheese
2 Tbsp SOOC Tuscan Herb Olive Oil

Directions

To make the dressing, combine the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until completely creamy. Set aside in the refrigerator.

To prepare the salad, brush the cut side of the romaine lettuce and the pieces of italian loaf with the Tuscan Herb Olive Oil.

On a grill over medium-high heat, place the pieces of bread on the grill along with the romaine hearts, cut side down. Continuously turn the bread pieces to ensure all sides get brown and crisp. Grill the romaine for about 3 minutes and remove from the grill. Once the croutons are crisp and ready, remove from the grill as well.

To assemble, pour the caesar dressing over the grilled romaine, and top with the grated parmesan, croutons, and avocado. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
