Paleo Caesar Salad with Shrimp

 Click here to Download Video 

My buddy, Wes Piatt, joins me for this one. Wes likes thing pretty plain, so getting him to taste this dressing was a phenomenal feat! 

Wes and I have been friends for nearly 5 years now. We've been to Power Monkey Camp together three times, he hosted a "Keep It Paleo!" seminar at his gym, he's supported Ice Age Meals from the start, and he's a total hunk!

I look up to Wes for his disciplined, no excuses attitude. He is also wicked strong, runs a tight ship at Coast Range CrossFit and will be competing at the California Regional over Memorial Day weekend. Good luck, Wes! I'll be there to cheer you on. 

As far as Paleo Caesar goes, I recommend you learn to make this one. You can tweak the ingredients a bit to make it more garlicky, add extra anchovies for a deep Caesar flavor, or even add Parmesan cheese if that's your thing. Whatever you do, get in the kitchen and do your best to "Keep It Paleo!" 

We're here to help!

Your Pals,

Nick and Wes
