Here’s the healthy Ceasar from abc27’s Good Day Pa! I’ll post the video later today.
18 years ago, I was producing the Noon newscast at abc27 when Daniel Britcher was the guest on the show…making Alfred’s Victorian’s Ceasar Salad. It was the first time we met…and I had no idea he’d be my husband two years later. That first day, I literally asked him 3 times how to spell his last name…never thinking it would be mine!
Here we are many years later, and he’s developed his own style of Ceasar that’s a bit healthier. I will admit that my mom’s super-buttered up croutons are the best! But, when I’m cutting back or just need to work more good whole foods into my day, sweet potato croutons hit the spot.
Mix together in the bottom of a large salad bowl:
1-3 heaping tablespoons hummus
1 tablespoon lemon juice or squeeze of half a lemon
1 tablespoon Worcestershire
1-3 cloves crushed garlic
Take your olive oil bottle and pour it around the bowl three times
Add 1-3 torn-up heads of Romaine lettuce
Season with salt & pepper
Top with grated Parmesan
Sweet Potato Croutons
2 sweet potatoes, cubed
2 Tablespoons olive oil
Sea Salt, to taste
Preheat oven to 450. Roast the sweet potatoes on a parchment lined baking sheet for 25 minutes. Toss into the salad.
