    Transfer all ingredients into a large mixing bowl and combine evenly. Season with salt to taste.

Assembly 4 Steps

    Before you begin, in a frying pan over medium heat, gently render the pancetta until it is golden brown and crispy.

  • Step 3

    Generously dress the wedges with Caesar dressing.

  • Step 4

    Garnish the salad with breadcrumbs, pancetta, anchovies and the shaved Grana Padano.
