Food Service Recipe: Caesar Salad Bread Bowl

Caesar salad in a bread bowl… bowling for a non-traditional presentation.

For this Caesar salad, we wanted to treat the bread bowl as if it was a crouton (a giant round crouton), seasoning with the same garlic flavor profile as a standard crouton.

Bread Bowl of Caesar Salad  


  • 1 Toasted bread bowl, seasoned with a garlic basil oil and Parmesan cheese
  • 1 head romaine, washed and cut
  • 3 oz Caesar dressing
  • 2 oz Parmesan cheese, shaved
  • 12 leaves of flat leaf parsley

Mix together all ingredients and serve in a toasted & seasoned bread bowl.

Optional: Top salad with sliced prosciutto, and a hard boiled egg cut in 1/2
