Food Friday on Empty Streets: Ceasars Salad

Posted 6:21 AM by Unknown in Labels: , , ,
I love a good salad and what surprised me the most today was that I found out that a lot of my officemates didn't know how to make a basic Ceasar Salad. So for their benefit I have prepared a pretty simple and easy recipe to follow. Cool thing about this recipe is you can add a lot of other things with it according to your taste.

Classic Caesar Salad
Serves 4 - 6 (depending on the size of the plates)

* 2 head Romaine, washed, dried, and outer leaves discarded
* 3/4 cup garlic flavored olive oil
* 1/2 tsp salt
* 1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
* 1 large lemon, halved
* 6-8 drops Worcestershire Sauce
* 2 Coddled Eggs
* 1/4 cup Imported Parmesan Cheese, grated
* 1 cup garlic croutons


Wash, dry and discard the lettuce. That's it. Now put it all together.

Place Romaine in a large salad bowl and assemble all the ingredients on a tray tableside. Pour about 1/2 cup of the garlic flavored olive oil over the Romaine. Toss gently using a rolling motion. Add salt and pepper and toss lightly.

Squeeze lemon juice-you should have about 2 1/2 ounces-over the salad and add the Worcestershire sauce. Break eggs over the salad. Add the remaining 1/4 cup olive oil. Add the cheese and toss again until the leaves are well coated.

Add the croutons last and toss slightly. Arrange individual leaves on a dinner plate, stem side out, the easier to eat with the fingers as Caesar Cardini intended. Serve immediately.

This recipe will serve 4 to 6 depending on the serving plate size.

Here is a video version of this recipe for you to try by a very cool chef ;)

Don't be so shocked. A lot of people like eating Ceasar Salad but only a few can actually make it. I like it myself, but I can only eat it too! LOL!
Thanks for sharing the recipe. Hopefully I can make my own salad from now on. :D
