This traditional caesar salad recipe is wonderful, and makes a great first course. It's light, gets a bit of crunch from the croutons, and is dressed with an old-fashioned and easy dressing recipe that's delicious!

In a large skillet, heat half of the olive oil and half of the garlic cloves over medium-low heat. When the garlic becomes fragrant and softens, add the cubed bread and saute until hardened. Once toasted, remove from heat and set aside.

In a large bowl, mix all of the remaining ingredients except the Romaine and croutons. Once well mixed, add the lettuce and toss. Follow with croutons, and then top with a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese.
