Tips  

Cajun seasoning is a complex blend of herbs and spices that includes three kinds of pepper, thyme, oregano, bay leaf, garlic and onions. It's an easy way to add the zesty Cajun flavor popularized by Chef Paul Prudhomme.

To substitute for the Caesar salad mix, use 4 cups of torn romaine lettuce leaves, 1/3 cup Caesar dressing, 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese and 1 cup croutons.
