Want a quick, easy, and tasty appetizer to make for your next gathering? Look no further as this recipe is just what you’re looking for. I’ve been making these for the last two months and everyone, toddlers included, approves of these little Caesar salad baskets. My eldest son specifically requests it and says it’s his favorite salad. I’m glad it’s one of those healthy meals I don’t have to trick my sons into eating and that they enjoy it so willingly…ha ha! We just made these for our New Years’ Eve party last night and lets just say they flew off of the platter and there were no leftovers. This recipe was originally from Rachael Ray. I have adapted it so that all you need to buy are the two Caesar salad bag kits and the Parmesan cheese to make the cheese cups.

    What a cool idea! I must say, I’m glad you didn’t make the cones – I was feeling singularly unaccomplished!
