Caesar Salad Recipe

There are many healthier dinners I enjoy. One of my favorite is a homemade caesar salad. It is easy to make the dressing, does not take a long time, and extremely delicious! I hope you will consider trying it!

First the ingredients you will need are:
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 tbsp fresh lemon juice (I use lemons I squeeze but you can use lemon juice from a bottle as well)
  • 1 medium garlic clove, crushed (I love garlic so usually I use a bit more than this, try what works for you)
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper
  • 1 1/2 tsp anchovy paste or 4 flat anchovies
  • 1 tsp capers (I do not use these)
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/3 cup virgin olive oil
  • 2 medium head romaine lettuce
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
  • Croutons
    Next, now that you have your ingredients, you can start making the salad dressing

Step 1: The first step is to coddle the egg. You only want to do this for 45 seconds to one minute. Then cool the egg. NOTE: Make sure the egg is completely cool before you mix it with the other ingredients.

Step 2: Next you want to start mixing the ingredients. For this a wood bowl is preferred, this makes it easier to crush the garlic and other ingredients together. If you do not have a wood bowl that is okay. Mix together Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, garlic, salt & pepper, anchovy, mustard and capers into bowl. When egg is completely cooled, crack into mixture. Mix until smooth.

Step 3: Slowly add in oil, in a steady stream while constantly whisking, until smooth.

 

Step 4: Add lettuce, Parmesan cheese, and croutons.

Step 5: Serve and enjoy. To make the dish more presentable, I like to coat the plate with fresh lemon juice and ground pepper on the plate before serving the salad.

 

 

This salad is delicious! Let me know what you think! Are there any other caesar recipes you enjoy?
