Caesar Salad in Peppered Parmesan Bowls

Ingredients

 

  • 2 cups shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 2 romaine hearts, cut into bite-size pieces (about 6 cups)
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
  • 3/4 cup Caesar salad croutons, slightly crushed
  • 1/4 cup creamy Caesar salad dressing

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl, toss cheese with pepper. Heat a small nonstick skillet over medium heat. Evenly sprinkle 1/4 cup cheese mixture into the pan to form a 6-in. circle; cook, uncovered until bubbly and edges are golden brown, 1-2 minutes. Remove skillet from heat; let stand 15 seconds.
  2. Using a spatula, carefully remove the cheese and immediately drape over an inverted 4-oz. ramekin; press cheese gently to form a bowl. Cool completely. Repeat with remaining cheese, making eight bowls.
  3. In a large bowl, combine romaine, tomatoes and croutons. Just before serving, drizzle with dressing and toss to coat. Serve in Parmesan bowls.
