Caesar Salad

Posted on by


My family loves Caesar Salad and over the years I have tried so many different ways to make homemade dressing.  So far this is our favorite.

1 Head of Romaine Lettuce washed and torn into bite size pieces

Dressing

Whisk all of the following ingredients together in a bowl that can be covered and refrigerated.
1/4 cup of Virgin Olive Oil
3 dashes of Worcestershire Sauce
4 – 5 Cloves of Garlic pressed
1 Tsp of Anchovy Paste
1/2 Tsp of Lemon Juice (I use the concentrated type)
1 Tbsp of Dijon Mustard
1/2 cup of Mayonnaise
Fresh ground Pepper (According to your taste)

Following added after salad is made.
Parmesan Cheese (I prefer to grate on the salad right before serving)
Bacon Bits (If you have them)
Croutons (If you have them)

Sometimes I will add fresh-diced tomatoes or Red Onion thinly sliced rings.  Also another ingredient which is very tasty to add to the salad is chick peas which I often have left over from other recipes.  Make it a meal and add grilled chicken breast cut into strips.

The great thing about making this dressing, which I often do, is double it up so that I have enough for 2 – 3 salads.  It will keep in the refrigerator covered for about a week.

I make the dressing early in the day and whisk all the ingredients together cover and refrigerate and then just before dinner or lunch I will toss the dressing with 1 head of romaine lettuce. Add your freshly grated Parmesan cheese, bacon bits, croutons and any of the other suggestions like diced tomatoes, red onion or chick peas.  Serve and enjoy.

This is probably one of the best Caesar Salad Dressing I have ever had.  Have also had many compliments on it.
