MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 23, 2014

"This was delicious. I could not tell the difference between traditional ceasar salad. I blended the dressing in my Vitamix blender between speed 1~5. The apple cider vinegar really took the place of the lemon juice well. I added peeled chopped cucumbers and Trader Joes croutons. TY"

"This was so easy and tasted great. I'm making it again today and will forget about buying bottled dressing. Will just add some croutons for the perfect salad."
