Mexican Ceasar Salad

A friend made this for us and it is so tasty! Tasha said it sounded hot, but it really isn't. It is a yummy twist on a basic salad. Do enjoy. It is great with Grilled Chicken


Romaine lettuce

shredded pepper jack cheese (a sprinkling)

roasted pumpkin seeds

croutons, pretzels, or crushed tortilla chips. (I prefer something with kick: we've used Doritos sweet and spicy or buffalos wing flavored pretzels, whatever you heat preference is.)

Mexican ceasar dressing

4 oz green chilies

a sprinkling of minced garlic or garlic salt

1 tsp. salt

1/8 cup red wine vinegar

1 bunch cilantro

a few good pepper grinds

1/4 cup oil

1/3 cup mayo

a dash of cayenne pepper.

Mix greens and add dressing last. Sprinkle with croutons. This is a recipe I have modified from the internet (dubstogsdill). Tried to reduce the fat. This will make enough for two or three salads. We have also used this on a steak salad and it was great as well.
