Birthday Salad

I think every woman deserves a night off from cooking on her birthday. I'm sorry men, that's just the way it is. But I am too much of a realist not to admit that there are just times we're all going to have to! This year with my birthday being on a Monday, I accepted the fact we would be having a "normal" day w/ school, work, chores and I would be making dinner. However, I decided upon that realization that it would be very simple!! Frozen pizza was just the thing! But we are the type of family that can't survive by "pizza alone". We need some sort of side dish, salad, etc. I had come across this recipe a while ago, was waiting for the right time to use it, and thought it wasn't too complicated for my night "off". This is truly one of the best salads I've ever made and my new favorite version! From now on, any time frozen pizza is on the menu, this will be too! Everyone deserves a day off, especially on your special day, even if it's only "sort of" off!!

Easy Caesar Salad Adapted from Taste of Home
2 hearts of Romaine, chopped
Garlic Croutons

Mix all together and drizzle w/ dressing and top with extra cheese if desired.

Dressing:
1/4 c. mayo
1/4 c. shredded Parmesan cheese
