Cajun Blue Caesar Salad
Caesar salad responds well to innovations—as long as the flavors are bold yet balanced.
Why This Recipe Works
For the perfect Cajun Blue Caesar Salad, we started with our favorite Caesar Salad dressing, which eliminated the raw egg of the traditional dressing but added depth with anchovies and Worcestershire sauce. Using just a small amount of garlic prevented the garlic flavor from overpowering our other ingredients, while vinegar and lemon juice added brightness and balance.
We used an ample amount of blue cheese to add a strong, tangy flavor to our Cajun Blue Caesar. To give the croutons Cajun flair, we coated them with Old Bay seasoning, garlic, onion powder, and coriander before toasting.
