How can I serve Caesar dressing for a party other than in a salad?

I have a delicious Caesar dressing recipe that I have made a few times. I am all about it and would now like to serve it when I'm entertaining.

I could serve it in a salad but I'd rather do something else! I wouldn't mind a salad-like preparation (I've seen something like a shredded Caesar salad on bread).

My first thought was to just to offer it as a dip for bread or spread it on soft Italian or French bread (so good) or as crostini.

Any other ideas?

(Also, agh! The recipe on the original site seems to be gone! Here it is on another site:

  1. It would be delicious drizzled over roasted asparagus or broccoli. Add some shaved Parmesan curls and sprinkle toasted bread crumbs for that crunch.

      Sounds good! Also reminds me of a new recipe I want to try: panagritata. That could be good on top, too.

    2. Low key I know but how about mixing with finely minced chicken and making mini crescent bites. Dressing for dip. Or full fledged crescent servings. You don't say what kind of party or how many people involved.

        I wasn't thinking how many people but I can use my apartment for measure! :) Probably 10-15 people. I have been trying to think of ways to use crescent rolls since they're so convenient.

      2. Bread spread is always nice. Finger sandwiches with a bit of chicken or ham inside. Dip for veggies (you might want to consider the strength of flavor and consistency, and alter those for the dip if needed).

        1. Love it in chicken salad.

          1. Chicken Caesar summer rolls -- roll up romaine, chicken, Parmesan, and maybe croutons, then dip in Caesar dressing.

              I was thinking this as well or poured over baked chicken
