caesar salad dressing

Chicken Caesar slad

Caesar salads are really all about the dressing and I like to add chicken and croutons to mine to make it a whole meal. Some people like to add bacon bits and a couple of other toppings so see what you have in the fridge and dress it up as you like. These are such simple salads and seriously delicious. (for 2 people)

The process


2 garlic cloves minced (about 1 teaspoon)
5 small anchovy fillets chopped finely
Good grind of black pepper
30ml lemon juice
½ teaspoon strong mustard (Dijon)
1 egg yolk (can be replaced with 75ml mayonnaise)
75ml olive oil


1 Romain lettuce (must be romain)
2 cooked chicken breasts shredded
Handful of croutons
Parmesan cheese
Black pepper

The process

Add all of the dressing ingredients to a bowl and whisk well until completely combine and a pale colour.

Separate the lettuce and wash well, spin or shake dry and place on a plate.

Pour over most of the dressing and finely grate a good amount of parmesan (palm full or so), give the leaves a light toss to coat with the dressing, then cover with the chicken and croutons and pour over the rest of the dressing.

Serve with a grind of black pepper.

Enjoy it folks.
