Radicchio Caesar Salad with Toasted Garlic Panko
This Radicchio Caesar Salad with Toasted Garlic Panko is far from your average Caesar salad recipe! Tossed in a homemade Caesar dressing, shaved parmesan, and toasted garlic panko breadcrumbs, every bite of this simple salad is packed with flavor.
Making a salad with radicchio means every bite will have strong flavors and a slight bitterness. This is complemented by the creamy homemade Caesar salad dressing and crunchy, buttery toasted panko breadcrumbs. It’s a surprisingly simple salad with bold flavors!
