Caesar Salad With Its Own Dressing Recipe

Ingredients

Makes 2 To 3 Large Salads

Caesar Dressing

  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • ¼ teaspoon minced garlic (about half a small clove)
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons shredded parmesan cheese
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise

Salad

  • 1 pound romaine lettuce (a large head or hearts)
  • 1/3 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • croutons (store-bought or homemade-see soups)

Method

  1. To make the dressing, combine the lemon juice, worcestershire sauce, mustard, garlic, salt, and parmesan in a bowl (a small one if you are making the dressing ahead of time, or the salad bowl itself if you are making this just before serving)
  2. Whisk until thoroughly combined, then continue whisking as you drizzle in the olive oil
  3. When all the olive oil is incorporated, stir in the mayonnaise until completely blended
  4. Separate the romaine leaves, and then wash them in very cold water and spin them very dry
  5. Shortly before serving, transfer the entire batch of dressing to the salad bowl (a wide, shallow one works very well for this)
  6. Break or cut the romaine leaves into bite-sized pieces, and add them to the dressing in the bowl
  7. Begin turning the leaves with salad servers or tongs, sprinkling in the parmesan cheese as you turn
  8. The leaves will begin to get coated with the dressing
  9. When they are mostly coated, grind in a generous amount of black pepper, then continue turning until everything is nicely combined
  10. Toss in the croutons at the very end, and serve
