Creamy Caesar Dressing

Primal Recipe Tester Creamy Caesar Dressing

Nothing beats a good Caesar salad in my book. Add some grilled chicken and my Creamy Caesar Dressing to romaine lettuce for a simple dinner that will be sure to satisfy. And for some crunch? Try my Pork Rind Crusted Soft Boiled Eggs. Or for an easy app, mix the dressing with hard boiled egg yolks (1 tbsp/yolk) and top with crushed pork rinds and green onions for Caesar deviled eggs. Yum!
