Caesar Salad


I am posting this recipe because
we have eaten it for dinner the past
three nights at my husband's request.

He LOVES Caesar Salad!

This dressing recipe is AWESOME!

Caesar Salad Dressing
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1 tea. minced garlic
1 tea. Worcestershire sauce
1 anchovie packed in oil in a can
olive oil 'til smooth

Salad
Romaine lettuce
Freshly grated parmesan cheese
Croutons (I'll show you how to make your own.)
Add grilled chicken to make a meal.

In a food processor...I use my mini,
add the anchovie to the mayonnaise.

I know what you're thinking...
Anchovies????  Ick!!
PLEASE use the anchovie even if you
hate fishy fish.

It doesn't taste like fish in this recipe...
it adds an amazing bite to the
dressing and it's just not a real
Caesar without it.

You can find cans of anchovies in the
aisle with
canned fish by the tuna.


add the minced garlic...


Add the Worcestershire sauce.


Blend this WELL...
then slowly add olive oil until
the dressing is the thickness you like.

Refrigerate until ready to serve.


To prepare salad,
cut  Romaine lettuce into bite-sized pieces
and sprinkle in freshly grated parmesan
cheese.


I first pound chicken breasts until thin,
 brush them with Italian dressing
and toss them on the grill.

Cut into strips.


You can use store-bought croutons,
but making them yourself will
GREATLY enhance the salad!

Croutons
Any crusty white bread
olive oil
Italian seasoning (Found with spices.)
Kraft Parmesan cheese in green canister
Bread is best to use for croutons
when it's starting to stale.

Cut it into chunks like this:

Put the cut bread in a large mixing bowl
and drizzle with olive oil.
Sprinkle heavily with Italian seasoning
and garlic powder.

Sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese
and give the croutons a good toss to coat
evenly.
Spread on a foil covered cookie sheet.

Dab any dry croutons with a bit of
olive oil.
Bake croutons at 350-degrees
for 10-13 minutes or until crispy and golden.

Cool before adding to salad.


Toss it all together with the dressing
before serving.


Looking at that mouth-watering photo...
we may have to have this for a FOURTH night!
