                Seeing how much salt you added to the dressing made me cringe.

                    How do you store your cheese? I've noticed you use blocks of cheese rather than shredded.

                                                  Panzanella is my favorite salad too!!!
                                                  Also the original Caesar salad is not shopped. They served the whole leaves of Roman lettuce 🥬 in Tijuana :) and we do put anchovy filet. If you go to the restaurant/ hotel where it was invented, they prepare it on your table. It’s delicious!! Caesar’s ( the restaurant) also has pretty bomb bone marrow!
