This has a fun twist for a caesar salad. I used the root vegetable jicama that has the texture of a potato and the sweet taste of a coconut.

Light, fresh and crispy... just the way a salad should be! We loved the addition of the crunchy tortilla strips, and the jicama and pepper made a lovely, sweet addition. You can really taste the lemon in this, so you may want to cut back just a bit if you'd prefer a more subtle tartness. The Test Kitchen

With a name like Caesar salad, you'd think it was invented in Italy. In actuality, it was invented in Mexico! Caesar Cardini, an Italian immigrant, owned restaurants in San Diego...
