I love to serve ceasar salads when guests come over. They are simple, present well, and have a resturant quality to them: in fact I always think they make the meal feel more formal. Ceasar dressing is one of the easiest things to make and althought the classic recipe calls for raw eggs, I choose to substitute as small amount of mayonnaise instead.
Full time 5-10 minutes
You will need:
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tbsp mayonnaise
1/2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1/4 tsp Worcestershire sauce
Let us begin:
Add all ingredients except olive oil to a personal food processor (or sealable jar).
Pulse (or seal and shake) until all ingredients are well blended, roughly 10-15 seconds.
Slowly drizzle in olive oil and pulse just to add in or emulsify mixture, roughly 10 seconds.
Drizzle over a bed of fresh romaine lettuce, top with croutons, and fresh shaved Parmesan. Cheers!
