Caesar Salad

So yesterday I ate pretty much non-stop all day. My family got together for a big holiday feast. I haven’t been very hungry at all today, still full I suppose. Though I’m not hungry I can’t very well fast the entire day, it’s just not healthy. So I decided I’d make something light. I’ve been craving caesar salad for a while, so today is the day! Sadly, I didn’t have any bacon, so it went without. I added shaved fennel for a little extra flavor, texture, and substance. Clearly not the same as bacon, but it’s actually not an uncommon addition to a caesar, and I had it on hand. This recipe makes enough for 1 large salad or 2 small side salads.
