The Canadian Caesar Salad

Why it's on our list

When visiting Canada on a family trip, we stumbled on to a fantastic steakhouse that claims to have invented the Caesar Salad, now we can't be sure that it's true... But ever since we've been making our version of this amazingly simple salad that our husbands often request.

Whitney. I think I better try those croutons to make sure they are okay for our guests, right? – Lance

The Easy Part

  • Heat oven to 350

  • In a large bowl, toss together the bread and olive oil. If the bread looks really dry add more

  • Once the bread is coated, add in the garlic powder, onion powder, and greek seasoning

  • Toss together until the spices cover all the bread pieces. You might need to add more olive oil and/or spices to get it all coated

  • Line a baking sheet with foil, and add the croutons making sure there is some room in between. You might need two sheets, so it’s not overcrowded

  • Bake in the oven for 8 minutes and then toss the bread around. Bake for another 8 minutes or until desired browness


Serve it up!
