The Classic Caesar Salad Gets An Avocado Makeover

California Avocado Classic Caesar Salad

We can’t get enough of avocados. They’re delicious. And, like extra virgin olive oil, they’re healthy. So what’s not to love! In the dish featured here, an avocado serves as the springboard for a remake of the classic Caesar salad. Call it an avocado makeover. (Click here to see the recipe.)

This particular Caesar – from the California Avocado Commission – includes olive oil-toasted croutons, ripe avocado (naturally), romaine lettuce, and cherry tomatoes. It comes together with an avocado-based dressing.

The dressing – made in a blender or food processor – combines fresh avocado, garlic, fresh lemon juice, red wine vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, and shredded Parmesan. Our Everyday Fresh oil would work well for this dressing – and the olive oil-toasted croutons. (Click here to see the recipe.)

Large avocados are recommended for this recipe, which was created by Gaby Dalkin of What’s Gaby Cooking. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If you’re using smaller or larger size avocados, adjust the quantity accordingly.

Bon appétit,
