(Family Features) Light bites and summer just seem to go hand-in-hand, especially when the temperature outside means turning on the oven is out of the question. Whether you’re trying to put a meal on the table quickly or serving a crowd at your next summer get-together, putting a few small twists on seasonal favorites, such as Caesar salad kits, can be a perfect solution when you want to kick back and relax instead of spending extra time in the kitchen.
With more than 100 varieties of fresh, healthy and convenient ready-to-eat salads – including nine Caesar salad varieties – Fresh Express offers tasty and versatile salad kits that feature premium ingredients and can be eaten as a standalone salad or dressed up in next to no time to make mealtime a true celebration of the season.
For example, this Muffuletta Caesar Sandwich gets its flavor from the Caesar Chopped Salad Kit, which includes chopped romaine, Parmesan Caesar dressing and savory croutons topped with cracked pepper and grated Parmesan cheese. Simply fill two bread bowls with giardiniera, red peppers, green olives, celery, parsley, salami, cheese and salad then combine to meld the flavors for a tasty take on an Italian specialty sandwich.
Or add breaded calamari to the classic, restaurant-style Caesar Salad Kit featuring crisp romaine lettuce, rich and flavorful Caesar dressing, crunchy garlic croutons and Parmesan cheese for a perfect first-course salad, no trip to a restaurant needed.
