Pop quiz: Which super-tasty main-course greens are famous for their irresistible dressing? If you said Caesar salad, you’d be right! I spiced up the classic recipe by adding roasted shrimp and chili-powder-dusted tortilla-chip croutons for a Southwestern twist on this craveable meal.
Sarah’s Tip of the Day:
This recipe is simple: Brush corn tortillas with olive oil, and dust with salt, pepper, and chili powder before baking. While the chips are cooking, roast shrimp in olive oil and chili powder, and dress romaine lettuce in anchovies, light mayonnaise, Parmesan cheese, lime juice, and water. Serve salad in a bowl topped with shrimp and tortillas, and prepare to look at Caesar salad in a whole new way!
