It’s a fun summer twist on one of my favorite salads. I made a super easy from scratch caesar dressing which has everyones favorte – anchovies!

In case your sarcasm filter wasn’t turned on, I’ve not heard many a people rant and rave about anchovies.

But for some reason no one seems to complain about it in Caesar dressing

I grilled up these colossal shrimp, that are just as good as lobster. Whenever I feel like splurging I always go for these shrimp!

You could easily replace lobster with colossal shrimp in this smoked lobster roll with old bay season chips recipe

This is a fun way to do grilled shrimp Caesar salad. grilling up a wedge of romaine lettuce and letting everyone cut it as they eat also cuts down on prep time.

To save prep time, make ahead the Caesar dressing, thaw your shrimp, and your dinner is done in 10 minutes.

Perfect for those warm summer days when I get home from work and too lazy to cook, but just cant get my butt back into the hot car to pick up dinner.
