Sara's Classic Caesar Salad

This is truly the best Caesar Salad recipe. We eat this at least once a week. Add some cut up roasted chicken to the salad, serve with your favorite soup and this makes for a wonderful, light dinner. My Mother-in-Law, Sara is a gourmet cook and this is our version of her recipe. Sara has taken cooking classes from France to Vietnam, to give you an idea of the diversity of the dishes she masterfully prepares. She's always inspiring us to try new and interesting meals. I will be including a lot of Sara's recipes in the future. She's not only my beloved MIL, she's a very dear friend as well. Thank you for always being there, Sara!
