"I couldn't find a single Caesar salad recipe I liked, so I combined ingredients from a few recipes and came up with this one," shares Kathy Keleher of Oak Creek, Wisconsin. "The addition of fruit gives this salad such a wonderful flavor. You could use a mango or mixed dried fruit instead of an apple or a pear."
