This is a great Caesar salad with a twist. If you have ever been in Israel long enough, you know what toast is: any regular sandwich toasted in a panini machine – hence the name toast. I once went out with a friend and tasted a salad similar to this. I wanted to come up with something equally delicious, relatively easy to throw together, and a little different in presentation. I used wraps instead of bread to make this component Mezonos, so that the salad is suitable anytime, not only for shalosh seudos.
2 (10-inch) Mezonos wraps (corn tortillas work great too)
3/4 cup shredded Muenster cheese
1/4 teaspoon ground Gefen Black Pepper
2 tablespoons water
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese (optional)
1 (8-ounce) bag romaine
1/2 a red onion, sliced
1 Kirby cucumber, sliced
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet.
Place a wrap on the baking sheet and sprinkle with cheese. Bake until cheese begins to melt. Top with the second wrap and continue to toast until edges of wrap begin to crisp. Let cool and cut into strips. (These can be served hot or at room temperature on top of salad.)
Alternatively, you can use a panini machine to toast the wraps.
Prepare the dressing. Whisk together all ingredients.
Assemble the salad. Combine lettuce, red onion, and cucumber in a large bowl. Toss with dressing and top with cheese toast strips.
