Classic Caesar Salad

9 Oct

By far my favorite salad, its tangy, salty, savory, and creamy. Add a nice sliced breast of chicken, some fresh cut tomatoes and my homemade garlic croutons. Top it all with some shaved parmesan and fresh cracked black you got yourself the best homemade caesar salad you’ve ever had.

What ya need:

for the dressing:

2 cloves garlic, smashed
Dijon mustard
1 egg white (or substitute tablespoon mayo)
fresh grated parmesan
juice of lemon
red wine vinegar
worchestire sauce
chopped anchovies
extra virgin
fresh cracked pepper

for the salad:

head of romaine
cherry tomatoes, halved
my Homemade Garlic and Rosemary Croutons
shaved parmesan
lemon wedge
fresh cracked pepper

Heres what ya do:

1. Combine vinegar, worchestire, dijon, egg white, and lemon juice in bowl and whisk. Add in anchovies, parmesan, black pepper and whisk again.

2. Slowly drizzle the olive oil while whisking to emulsify the oil into the dressing. It is important to whisk fast and drizzle the oil slowly or else the oil and vinegar in your dressing will separate. Whish until the dressing is a nice light and creamy consistency, I find its about a 1/4 cup oil oil in all.

3. Clean and chop your romaine leaves and place on plate top with cherry tomatoes and Homemade Garlic Croutons (you can also add a Grilled Chicken Breast or some fresh avocado slices).
Drizzle your dressing over nicely.

4. Garnish with lemon wedge, shaved parmesan and some fresh cracked pepper.

All hail the Caesar!
