"My salad days - When I was green in judgment"
This is a cross between a Caesar salad and a Cobb salad, with a spicy twist.
Make sure that your salad greens are dry, dry, dry before tossing the dressing with the them. If they are damp the dressing won’t stick as well and you will have to use more. Usually 2 tablespoons of a well made dressing (one that is well emulsified) is enough if the greens are dry. A salad spinner is the key to drying lettuce and a must have in any kitchen.
