Truffled Caesar Salad
Originally created by an Italian-American immigrant, caesar salad is arguably one of the most well known salads and is a fan favorite for many. This recipe elevates the already creamy and umami rich dressing by adding the sweet garlicky flavor of White Truffle and the rich umami flavor of Black Truffle.Add chicken to complete this meal or serve as a side with your favorite pasta.
