caesar bar


to celebrate #CANADA150 i will be partnering with vitamix all month long to share the perfect party recipes! each one is canadian inspired & will be a hit at your canada day barbecue. to kick things off i thought a caesar with ALL the toppings deserved the first spot! you can't have a barbecue without some killer cocktails & who doesn't love a caesar? sipping on a caesar, flipping burgers by the grill.. it is like an appetizer in cocktail form! bonus points when you set up a killer caesar bar for your guest to "decorate" their own drinks. for my caesar i topped it with shrimp, pickles & olives but i have a ton of options below. just choose your favourites & give your guest as much variety as possible. from hardboiled eggs, to bacon, to shrimp there will be something for everyone.
