Love Caesar? Use romaine lettuce and add croutons and Parmesan shavings. Want something out of the ordinary? Fire up the grill or grill pan, quarter two heads of radicchio, and spray with olive oil. Char on the grill until softened. Chop and toss with the dressing. Want a touch of sweet? Swap balsamic vinegar for the white wine vinegar in the dressing and add a teaspoon of honey.

For an Asian spin, use 3 tablespoons peanut oil and 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil for the olive oil, lime juice for the lemon juice, and rice wine vinegar for the white wine vinegar. Want a French Vinaigrette? Add 1/2 teaspoon Dijon-style mustard and 1 tablespoon minced shallot. Want a heartier flavor? Use red wine vinegar or sherry vinegar in place of the white wine vinegar.
