Caesar Brussel Sprouts

This is a Salad that is so popular in my family that I never get to have any of the leftovers. If my aunt is around, she will take all the leftovers of this salad with her.  I am actually making this tomorrow, with teenagers home and everyone in and out of the house, I love having this as a go-to snack.  Watch out its addictive.  #junkfoodkids on Instagram when you make a junkfoodkids recipe and get featured in the weekly recipe roundup.
