Caesar Salad

Filed under: Salads, Sauces — blackteapot @ 12:10 am
Ingredients:
  • 2 head romaine lettuce, washed and torn into bite sized pieces
  • 3 cups cubed French bread
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 3 tsp dried herbs (basil, oregano, thyme, parsley, etc)
  • 3/4 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
  • 5 slices bacon, cut into small pieces

Dressing:

  • 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tsp anchovy paste or 4 anchovy fillets
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 egg
  • 3 cloves fresh garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • fresh ground black pepper

In a large frying pan, heat first amount of olive oil. Fry bread cubes until lightly golden. Toss with salt, pepper, and dried herbs. Set aside.

Fry bacon until crisp, and set aside.

In a bowl combine second amount of olive oil, lemon, anchovy, Worcestershire, egg, garlic,cheese and pepper. Blend with a hand mixture until thick. A blender can also be used, but I don’t find it gets as thick that way.

In a large bowl toss Romaine, bacon, croutons, and sauce. Sprinkle with first amount of Parmesan cheese, and serve immediately.
