Turn one of the most loved salads into finger food!

I love this recipe because it can be served as an appetizer, starter, or a meal. If baby romaine is unavailable, you can use endive or even iceberg lettuce wedges. Assemble just before serving to keep the lettuce crisp.

Super Simple Bruschetta: The Perfect Appetizer


4 heads of baby romaine, quartered
1 cup Caesar salad dressing
1/2 cup croutons, crushed
1/2 cup cooked bacon, crumbled
Fresh cracked pepper


Place romaine leaves onto a serving platter. Using a spoon, drizzle salad dressing over each one (you may need to thin it out with a little water). Top with croutons and bacon, and press into the lettuce to make it stick. Finish with fresh pepper, and serve.

My two loves are Food & Fitness. Bringing that together into businesses that let me be creative with my time is a dream come true! Easy Peasy Eats was where it started. A simple blog became a published cookbook, the cookbook became a Recipe Remix series for City TV and a brand spokesperson for various companies. Food became my whole life! Next came Jolt Nutrition. Both of my kids are involved in sport and I noticed that they didn't have a good sense of what to eat in terms of fuelling their bodies, proper hydration and recovery. I partnered with the academic community to create workshops for kids & youth that would be engaging and fun, and to support physical education and comprehensive school health. Essentially, I teach them how to excel through proper nutrition, taking their performance goals to the next level. Then the pandemic hit. Time to pivot again as guest speakers were not allowed in schools and sport had halted altogether. I didn't want to play the waiting game. Pilates was something I had done for years in one form or another so I become certified as a Stott Pilates® instructor. Teaching classes for both adults & kids is so fulfilling, and has become the gift I never expected, helping me understand my own body like never before. Life will take you in directions you never plan for sometimes. And I am so grateful it has!
