Tyler Florence, chef at Wayfare Tavern in San Francisco, loves Caesar salad so much he has a special wooden bowl at home just for making it. In this version with kale, he tops the salad with herb-roasted grapes, which add pops of sweet-tart flavor. For a more substantial salad, toss in shredded meat from Florence’s roast chicken or from a store-bought rotisserie bird. Slideshow: More Salad RecipesRecipe from Food & Wine Chefs' Easy Weeknight Dinners
