Mez dressing tops the salad

correspondentJuly 7, 2010 

One of my favorite restaurants is Mez in RTP. It has many great dishes, and the Caesar salad topped with grilled chicken is outstanding. The dressing is light and flavorful. I would love to know the secrets of the dressing recipe. - D.T., Cary
