Summer Caesar Slaw

My husband and I love Caesar Salads.  We used to have a Caesar Salad once a week.  I love using fresh romaine lettuce combined with crunchy croutons, crispy bacon and grilled chicken topped with a creamy Caesar dressing.

This is a busy week for us.  The twins will be turning one on Friday and I have been busy with preparing for their birthday party this weekend.  I was out shopping for their birthday supplies and by the time I got home, got the twins fed, it was already getting late to make what was on the menu.  I didn’t have any lettuce on hand but I did have a head of cabbage in the refrigerator so instead of making a traditional coleslaw I created it using fresh Caesar dressing.  

Earlier this year I invested in a Vita mix and it has been a great investment.  I use it several times a day for smoothies, pureeing the twins food and in this case, quickly shredding the cabbage.  Within a few minutes I had a whole head of cabbage shredded.  Add in a few other ingredients and let this chill in the refrigerator for at least and hour and a quick side dish is prepared.
