Caesar Salad with Tait Farm Foods Garlic Vinaigrette

A great Caesar Salad is a delicious treat. Top it with grilled vegetables, chicken or steak and you've got a fantastic entrée. Enjoy.

3 cups of bread torn into one inch pieces
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 clove minced garlic
Salt (to taste)
Pepper (to taste)
3 Hearts of Romaine Lettuce (will feed 6 people)
Tait Farm Foods Garlic Vinaigrette- Enough to coat
6 Anchovy Filets (optional)
Parmesan Cheese Shavings

Start by tossing the bread pieces in olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper making sure that each piece is evenly coated. Place on a baking sheet in a single layer. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 10-15 minutes or golden. Set aside.

If using anchovies place them in the bottom of a large bowl and mash with a fork. Add Tait Farm Foods Garlic Vinaigrette and stir together. Separate the hearts of romaine into individual leaves and place them in the bowl. Add croutons and cheese shavings (using a vegetable peeler on the cheese produces great cheese shavings). Toss to coat and serve.

Grilled Shrimp with TFF Olive and Rosemary Oil

16 Jumbo Shrimp
1/4 cup finely chopped garlic mashed into a paste
Pinch of kosher salt
3 Tablespoons Olive and Rosemary Oil
4 skewers

Blend the garlic, salt and oil together in a bowl. Add shrimp and marinate at least 4 hours or overnight. To grill, place 4 shrimp on each skewer and brush with oil. Grill skewers quickly in a hot grill, 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until cooked through. Serve on top of the classic Caesar for a great meal.
