Caesar Salad #18

Home | Recipes | C


  • 1 Romaine lettuce head
  • 1 Egg yolk; coddled
  • 2 lg Garlic cloves; finely chopped
  • 2 tb Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 ts Salt
  • 2 tb Fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 c Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 oz Anchovy fillets - (1 can); drained, chop fine
  • Freshly-ground black pepper; to taste
  • 1/4 c Freshly-grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 c Toasted croutons


Clean the lettuce of the tough outer leaves, hand-tear into bite size pieces, and carefully wash and dry. In a wooden bowl, combine the cooked egg yolk, garlic, mustard, salt and lemon juice. Using a wire whisk, combine the mixture until smooth and creamy. Then add the Romaine lettuce leaves and coat them completely. Add the olive oil by pouring in a slow, steady stream to produce a smooth, creaminess in the salad. Add the anchovies by mixing in evenly the chopped bits. Season with freshly-ground black pepper to taste. Add the Parmesan cheese and the toasted croutons and toss the salad again to coat the greens evenly. This recipe yields 4 servings.
Comments: To coddle egg, place a whole egg in the shell into boiling water for 1 minute, then separate egg, discard shell and white.
