Caesar Salad

Caesar Salad

Caesar Salad dressing is simply an emuslion of egg yolks, lemon juice, garlic, anchovies and olive oil. It is one of those dressings that people are particular about, some like more lemon and less anchovy while others like lots of garlic and anchovies. This version is slightly lemony so feel free to hold back a little of the juice.

  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 6 to 8 servings


  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 4 egg yolks*
  • 6 anchovies
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • Juice of two fresh lemons
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • Salt
  • Cracked black pepper
  • 2 large heads of romaine lettuce, washed, ribbed and patted dry
  • 3 ounces Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
  • 12 ounces of salad croutons


  • Rub the inside of a large wooden bowl, with the garlic cloves. Remove the garlic cloves, and finely chop. Add the egg yolks, remaining garlic, anchovies and mustard to the bowl. Whisk until all of the ingredients are incorporated. Whisk in the lemon juice. Slowly drizzle in the olive oil, while whisking constantly. Whisk until all of the ingredients are incorporated. Season the dressing with salt and pepper. Gently tear the lettuce into bit-size portions and add to the salad bowl. Using a handheld grater, grate the cheese into the bowl. Add the croutons. Toss the salad completely and reseason if necessary. Serve the salad on cold salad plates.
