Sausage Polpettine Caesar Salad

An Italian twist on the traditional Caesar Salad

My twist on the classic caesar salad, using tiny, breaded, sausage meatballs (polpettine). The meatballs are flavored with breadcrumbs, pine nuts, garlic and parsley, and rolled in panko breadcrumbs, then fried in a an anchovy flavored oil, mimicking the flavors in the classic caesar salad. Serve with Parmigiano Reggiano shavings. The polpettine are an interesting stand-in for the croutons, but seriously, I don't think you will even miss the croutons!
