Try this quick-and-easy version of a traditional Caesar salad.
Prep and Cook Time: 10 minutes
2 heads romaine lettuce, chopped (about 6 cups)(optional: use 3 cups arugula and 3 cups romaine)
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1 TBS lemon juice
1 tsp dijon mustard
1-2 cloves pressed or chopped garlic
1 smashed anchovy (optional)
Sea salt and pepper to taste
1 TBS extra virgin olive oil
1 TBS grated Parmesan cheese
In a large bowl, combine romaine lettuce and walnuts. (The toasted walnuts are added instead of the croutons usually served in traditional Caesar salads.)

Toss dressing with romaine lettuce and walnuts just before serving. Top with additional grated Parmesan cheese if desired.
