Possibly the only thing easier to make than a sandwich is a salad. So when I wanted an easy sandwich to make en masse for a recent party, I decided to toss up a Caesar salad and wrap up the results in Middle Eastern lavash bread. I figured that pretty much everyone loves Caesar salad, and the wrap-style 'wich made for fun finger food.
Since the sandwiches would be sitting out on a tray, I didn't want to make a traditional Caesar dressing with raw eggs. So I modified a healthier recipe that uses buttermilk and light mayo. It was incredibly easy, and the salad had a great kick to it, unlike some other healthy (and bland) Caesar salads I've tried. To get the recipe and for more photos, read more.
