Once you start making your own Caesar Salad from scratch you will never go back to bottled dressing again.  This recipe is fool-proof and well balanced.

Prep Time: 10 min

Cook Time: N/A

Portions: 8 ppl

Ingredients

  • ¼ Cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • 1 ½ Tbsp lemon juice

  • 1 egg yolk

  • 1/8 tsp salt, 1/8 tsp fresh ground pepper

  • 2 inch squeeze anchovy paste or 1 whole anchovy

  • 2 small minced garlic cloves

  • ½ Tbsp Worcestershire sauce

  • ⅓ cup olive oil, streamed in slowly

  • 3 Organic Romaine Hearts, washed and chopped

Directions

  1. Blend all ingredients (except for oil) together in the food processor until smooth.  
  2. With the motor running, slowly stream in olive oil in order to have a thick dressing. 
  3. Toss desired amount of dressing with romaine hearts.
  4. Garnish with Bacon bits and croutons (optional).  

NUTRITIONIST’S TIP:

This is the perfect Caesar Dressing in my opinion.  Caesar Salad isn’t super high on the “good for you” scale.  So, for my family we only eat it once in a while and I’m careful to be modest with the amount of dressing I use.  This recipe actually makes enough to dress 2 family sized side salads.  A lean protein accompaniment like boneless skinless chicken breast or flank steak would complete this meal.  I’ve also subbed in baby kale instead of the romaine (or 50/50).
