Caesar Salad Recipe

To prepare a classic Caesar salad, start with crisp romaine lettuce leaves, washed and chopped into bite-sized pieces. In a large salad bowl, toss the lettuce with homemade or store-bought Caesar dressing, ensuring each leaf is lightly coated. The dressing typically includes ingredients like mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, minced garlic, Worcestershire sauce, anchovy paste (or finely chopped anchovies), lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Adjust the dressing to taste, balancing the tanginess of the lemon with the umami richness of the Worcestershire and anchovies.

Next, sprinkle freshly grated Parmesan cheese over the salad and add crunchy homemade croutons. To make croutons, toss the cubed bread with olive oil, salt, pepper, and, optionally, minced garlic, then bake until golden brown and crispy. Gently toss everything together to distribute the flavours evenly. Serve the Caesar salad immediately as a refreshing appetiser or main course, optionally garnished with additional Parmesan shavings and a twist of freshly ground black pepper for added flavour. This classic recipe captures the essence of Caesar salad, offering a satisfying blend of textures and flavours that delight with every bite.
