Spinach Caesar Salad with Homemade Croutons




The great taste of Caesar salad dressing has been used in many ways other than the popular classic Caesar salad with romaine lettuce, croutons and parmesan cheese.  In this slight variation to the Caesar salad recipe, I used baby spinach, red onions, bacon and homemade croutons to create a tasty light lunch or starter.

Servings: 2-4
Prep Time: 15 minutes (for salad and dressing)
Cooking Time: 12 minutes (for croutons)

Ingredients:

Caesar Dressing
5 anchovy fillets
2 garlic cloves
1/2 cup canola oil
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 Egg yolks
1/4 Cup Parmesan Cheese finely grated

Croutons
2 cups French bread cut into 1/4 inch cubes
salt and freshly ground pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon fresh rosemary

Salad
6 oz. Baby Spinach
1/2 Small Red Onion julienned
3 Strips Bacon cooked and crumbled
