    Can substitute kale for Brussels sprouts and cooked chickpeas or cooked cannellini beans for cooked borlotti beans.

    Made again for Thanksgiving 2018, this time with brussels sprouts. And it was again great! Leftovers hold really well for a few days, even keeping their bite, if you just keep the croutons out on top.

    Really great salad. I loved the addition of the beans (I used braised cassoulet beans from Rancho Gordo), red onion, and sunflower seeds to a caesar. The dressing was creamy and unctuous, but I made a few small changes to it to adjust to my preference: instead of adding salt to season, I added anchovies; instead of adding water to blend and make it pourable, I added more lemon juice; and I also increased the quantities of garlic. I think I prefer things more acidic than this author, as I've had to add more with each salad of hers I've made. I also blended the dressing instead of just mashing and mixing with a fork. Regardless, this was great! Even with romaine (I had soooo much from my CSA) in place of brussels sprouts. I think you could use anything sturdier green here, really.

    This salad was shockingly good. The dressing was especially dreamy. The seeds added a lovely crunch. The croutons were delicious. Everybody in my family loved this- especially my seven year old!
